Abstract:

This book illustrates how linguistic analysis of undercover tape recordings made
by law enforcement can help defense attorneys, law enforcement officers, judges,
and juries better understand the effects of conversational strategies used to
give the appearance of criminal activity. If only the appearance of such crime
is created, law enforcement has not reached its evidentiary goal. Eleven
conversational strategies were used in the twelve actual criminal cases
described in this book.



Linguistic Field(s): Forensic Linguistics
