The Language of Perjury Cases outlines the contributions that linguistics canmake to both the gathering of evidence and the way that evidence is analyzedin 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 howgrammatical referencing, speech acts, discourse structure, framing, conveyedmeaning, intentionality, and malicious language affected the outcome of thesecases.
