Sažetak
Service letters are legal documents regularly issued by engine manufacturers and their licensees to inform engineers on various matters. Performance of each engine is continuously monitored and recorded data fed back to the manufacturers. The slightest irregularity is then investigated in order to eliminate its cause. The recommendations given in service letters often supersede those originally issued in the instruction manuals and the engine staff is advised to keep them as supplements to the relevant chapters of instruction books. The paper aims at identifying the most frequent terminology together with the typical collocations associated with it. For this purpose, a study has been undertaken of a specialized corpus, encompassing approximately 80 service letter reports, assembled from the MAN B&W Diesel A/S in the period between 1983 and 1999. Some tools employed in the investigation of service letters, such as frequency lists and concordances, have been borrowed from the field of corpus linguistics Finally, the ultimate aim of the paper is to recommend that this terminology and collocations be included into English textbooks for marine engineers in order to focus students’ attention to them and facilitate their acquisition and subsequent usage.
