Title: Dimensions of Forensic Linguistics
Edited By: John Gibbons
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=AALS%205
Series Title: AILA Applied Linguistics Series 5
Description:

This volume functions as a guide to the multidisciplinary nature of
Forensic Linguistics understood in its broadest sense as the interface
between language and the law. It seeks to address the links in this
relatively young field between theory, method and data, without neglecting
the need for new research questions in the field. Perhaps the most striking
feature of this collection is its range, strikingly illustrating the
multi-dimensionality of Forensic Linguistics. All of the contributions
share a preoccupation with the painstaking linguistic work involved, using
and interpreting data in a restrained and reasoned way.
