Hi,

Can anyone point me to the different existing standards and procedures
for measuring a speaker's (dis)fluency index or (dis)fluency rate (to
assess how fluent a speaker is)?

Thanks,
Gina

Subject: Language of the Law

Dear Linguists,

I will be teaching a new course, Language of the Law, and would very
much appreciate your help. Could you please recommend an up-to-date
textbook? If that is not possible, do you know of any recent studies
relevant to this topic? Since I will be sort of team-teaching this
course with lawyers, I would need a text that includes recent studies on
the language of Cyberlaw. Please e-mail me at
Sotillosmail.montclair.edu

Thank you,

Susana Sotillo,
