Abstract
The Swedish Academy of Sciences was founded in 1739. The article presents and discusses the explicit language policy of the academy and analyzes some aspects of the language and rhetoric of the transactions (in Swedish) of the academy:textual organization, objectivity, rhetorical devices, lexical apparatus, syntactic machinery and techniques of presentation. Special interest is devoted to the transition from Latin to Swedish as the medium of the scientific exposition.
