Title: The Language of Sexual Crime
Edited By: Janet Cotterill
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products/title.aspx?PID=275649
Description:

The Language of Sexual Crime draws on authentic data from rape, sexual
assault and abuse cases involving both adults and children. It is both a
timely and important collection in the context of global statistics which
suggest that crimes involving sexual violence are on the increase, and that
conviction rates are falling. Linguists, psychologists, police officers and
lawyers involved with cases of sexual crime, all of whom are represented in
this book, are currently engaged in exploring ways of improving questioning
techniques with both suspects and victims, in police interviews and in the
courtroom.
