What do the following questions have in common?

  • How is language used in legal proceedings?
  • How do the police use language during interrogations?
  • How well do potentially vulnerable groups, such as people with communication disabilities, fare within the justice system?
  • How much can courts rely on voice recognition and earwitness testimony?
  • How is authorship determined for anonymous letters and other media?

These are some of the questions addressed within the fascinating field of Forensic Linguistics.
