WHAT DOES TEXTUALISM MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Textualism

Textualism is a formalist theory of statutory interpretation, holding that a statute's ordinary meaning should govern its interpretation, as opposed to inquiries into non-textual sources such as the intention of the legislature in passing the law, the problem it was intended to remedy, or substantive questions of the justice and rectitude of the law. “ Textualist judges have contended, with much practical impact, that courts should not treat committee reports or sponsors' statements as authoritative evidence of legislative intent. These judges base their resistance to that interpretive practice on two major premises: first, that a 535-member legislature has no "genuine" collective intent concerning the proper resolution of statutory ambiguity; second, that giving weight to legislative history offends the constitutionally mandated process of bicameralism and presentment. ” — John F. Manning, "Textualism as a Nondelegation Doctrine", 97 Colum. L. Rev. 673, 1997, JSTOR 1123360 The textualist will "look at the statutory structure and hear the words as they would sound in the mind of a skilled, objectively reasonable user of words.
