Title: Forensic Linguistics
Subtitle: Second Edition
Written By: John Olsson

Description:

"John Olsson's Forensic Linguistics breaks new ground in forensic
linguistics in measured but definite steps. The strengths of Olsson's
contribution to the field, and what makes this serve as a useful
introductory text, is the depth of examples provided to the student, the
detail of cases provided for analysis, the practical analysis suggested in
the form of exercises, and the straightforward organization of the text.
Professional linguists and students alike will profit from a careful
reading and lively discussion of Olsson's work."
- Professor Gerald McMenamin, Department of Linguistics, California State
University, Fresno

First published in 2004, John Olsson's practical introduction to Forensic
Linguistics has become required reading for courses on this new and
expanding branch of applied linguistics. This second edition has been
revised and updated throughout, and includes new chapters on language in
the justice system, forensic transcription, and expanded information on
forensic phonetics. The book includes an appendix of forensic texts for
student study, exercises and suggestions for further reading.

This unique, hands-on introduction to Forensic Linguistics, based on
Olsson's extensive experience as a practising forensic linguist, is
essential reading for students, and researchers encountering this branch of
applied linguistics for the first time.
