An Introduction to Forensic Linguistics: Language in Evidence has established itself as the essential textbook written by leading authorities in this expanding field. The second edition of this bestselling textbook begins with a new introduction and continues in two parts. Part One deals with the language of the legal process, and begins with a substantial new chapter exploring key theoretical and methodological approaches. In four updated chapters it goes on to cover the language of the law, initial calls to the emergency services, police interviewing, and courtroom discourse. Part Two looks at language as evidence, with substantially revised and updated chapters on the following key topics: the forensic linguist forensic phonetics authorship attribution the linguistic investigation of plagiarism the linguist as expert witness. The authors combine an array of perspectives on forensic linguistics, using knowledge and experience gained in legal settings – Coulthard in his work as an expert witness for cases such as the Birmingham Six and the Derek Bentley appeal, and Johnson as a former police officer. Research tasks, further reading, web links, and a new conclusion ensure that this remains the core textbook for courses in forensic linguistics and language and the law. A glossary of key terms is also available at https://www.routledge.com/products/9781138641716 and on the Routledge Language and Communication Portal.

Die Forensische Linguistik ist ein Teilgebiet der angewandten Linguistik. Ihre Aufgabe ist es, sprachliche Daten zu analysieren, die Gegenstand einer juristischen Betrachtung sind. Forensische Linguistik befasst sich daher mit der Analyse von mündlichen (Sprechererkennung) und schriftlichen Texten (Autorenerkennung), die Gegenstand einer polizeilichen Ermittlung oder eines gerichtlichen Verfahrens sind, mit Äußerungsdelikten (z.B. Beleidigung), mit Plagiatsvorwürfen und mit Bedeutungs- und Verständlichkeitsnachweisen von streitigen Begriffen oder Äußerungen z.B. im Zusammenhang mit Markenrecht, Produkthaftung oder Vertragsrecht. Die Analyse anonymer Texte, die in den Philologien eine lange Tradition hat, wurde seit den 1950er Jahren in ihrem Potenzial als kriminalistische Hilfswissenschaft erkannt, in der Bundesrepublik trat die forensische Textanalyse erstmals im Zusammenhang mit den Bekennerschreiben der RAF und der Oetker-Entführung ins allgemeine Bewusstsein. Das vorliegende Studienbuch führt anhand authentischer Texte und exemplarischer Analysen in das Arbeitsfeld und in die wichtigsten Analysemethoden ein. Alle Kapitel sind mit konkreten Fällen illustriert, Aufgaben in den einzelnen Kapiteln ermöglichen eine unmittelbare Anwendung.

Nach seinem Bestseller ‚Der Code des Bösen‘ legt Raimund H. Drommel diesen wissenschaftlich fundierten Band zum Sprachprofiling vor. Der Begründer der sprachwissenschaftlichen Kriminalistik zeigt, wie mit interdisziplinären Methoden die Sprachprofile anonymer Autoren entschlüsselt oder auch Personen von dem Verdacht entlastet werden können, Urheber anonymer oder pseudonymer Texte zu sein. Vor einer differenzierten Darstellung des aktuellen Forschungsstandes präsentiert Drommel eine Auswahl eigener früherer Artikel, die er jeweils in ihren zeitlichen Kontext einordnet. Außerdem stellt er authentische Fälle vor, so dass ganzheitlich ein fundierter, empirischer Eindruck vom Vorgehen eines Sprachprofilers entsteht. Das Buch ist unterhaltsam und spannend geschrieben. Es bietet Kriminalisten, Juristen, Linguisten und allen am Sprachprofiling Interessierten ein breites interdisziplinäres Spektrum verwertbarer Erkenntnisse.

This book is a scholarly work of forensic linguistics that demonstrates how the principles of Gricean pragmatics and their recent elaboration in Information Manipulation Theory (IMT) can be of use to courts faced with deciding cases of allegedly fraudulent disclosure documents. The usual goal of legal rules for disclosure documents is not merely to prevent lying but other forms of deception as well. In particular, the goal of these rules is to force the communicator to reveal information that could cause material harm to certain receivers, harms that the communicator, for various reasons of self-interest, might prefer to keep secret or hidden. Because IMT and the Gricean framework have seldom been used in published studies to investigate legally mandated disclosure documents aimed at laypersons, this book seeks to enrich current explications of the rhetorical "workings" of deceptive disclosures within the broader Gricean tradition of pragmatics. The book questions the fundamental relationships among Grice’s maxims as well as the much circulated notion that violation of some maxims is more deceptive and more immoral than violations of others. In addition, the book also attempts to show how various other theories and research in discourse linguistics and reading comprehension can be used to support IMT analyses in addressing the discourse processing issues unique to legally required disclosure texts. In this way the book contributes to the larger dual mission of the field of forensic linguistics, which is both to understand and to improve courts’ impact on social justice.
