Title: Prosecutors’ Forensic Speech in Implicit Pragmalinguistics
Written By: Irina A. Zyubina
Description:

What does a new branch of linguistics ‘Implicit Pragmalinguistics’ mean? And
what methods of analysis does it use? What are the peculiarities of
prosecutor’s forensic speech as a speech genre? What kinds of individual
speech behavior and stereotyped speech behavior do English-speaking and
Russian-speaking prosecutors have from the point of view of Implicit
Pragmalinguistics? You will find not only the answers to these questions but
also a lot of useful information concerning a human being.The book consists
of three parts devoted to the description of the methods and requirements for
the linguistic analysis in Implicit Pragmalinguistics, to the peculiarities of
English-speaking and Russian-speaking prosecutors’ individual and
stereotyped speech behavior on the grounds of the pragmalinguistic
experimental results. There were studied 65,280 items of analysis or small
syntactical groups to diagnose individual-personal qualities of the Russian-
speaking and English-speaking prosecutors, their stereotyped speech
behaviour according to their periods of working, their speech addressees and
national-cultural belonging of speech senders.The type of academic
readership: the book appeals to philologists, courtroom professionals,
psychologists, sociologists, teachers and students.
