Title: Creating Language Crimes
Subtitle: How Law Enforcement Uses (and Misuses) Language
Written By: Roger W. Shuy
URL: http://www.oup.com/us/catalog/general/?view=usa&ci=0195181662
Description:

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.
