Book News Annotation:

Bringing together contributors from linguistics, law, criminology, and sociology, Coulthard (forensic linguistics, Aston U., UK) and Johnson (modern English language, U. of Leeds, UK) present a research handbook on key ideas, debates, topics, approaches, and methodologies in forensic linguistics, a field concerned with the functions of legal language, legal texts, and legal linguistic interactions. The handbook's 39 chapters are organized into sections on legal language; participants in police investigations, interviews, and interrogations; courtroom genres; lay participants in the judicial process; the linguist as expert in legal processes; multilingualism in legal contexts; authorship and opinion; and new debates and new directions (e.g. terrorism and functional linguistics, multimodality, and computational forensic linguistics). Supplementary materials for some chapters have been made available on an accompanying website. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
