Title: The Language of Defamation Cases
Written By: Roger W. Shuy
Description:

Slander and libel cases are largely about how one party uses language in
ways that are claimed to defame another. Linguistic expertise can be
central to the case. In "The Language of Defamation Cases," Roger W. Shuy
describes eleven representative lawsuits, involving newspapers, television
stations, religious leaders, physicians, teachers, entertainers, unions,
insurance companies, and manufacturers-- for which he served as a
consultant. Shuy's linguistic analysis illustrates how grammatical
referencing, speech acts, discourse structure, framing, conveyed meaning,
intentionality, and malicious language affected the outcomes of these cases.

"The Language of Defamation Cases" shows how linguistics can be used to
help resolve libel and slander cases.
