Title: The Language of Perjury Cases
Written By: Roger W. Shuy
URL: us.oup.com/us/catalog/general/subject/Linguistics/?view=usa&ci=9780199795383
Description:

The Language of Perjury Cases outlines the contributions that linguistics can
make to both the gathering of evidence and the way that evidence is analyzed
in perjury cases. Roger W. Shuy describes eleven representative lawsuits--
involving bankruptcy, unions, hunting licenses, doctors, priests, and Senators--
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 outcome of these
cases.
