The Handbook is a unique work of reference to the leading ideas, debates, topics, approaches and methodologies in forensic linguistics and language and the law. It comprises 43 chapters, including entirely new contributions from many international experts, in the areas of Aboriginal claimants, appraisal and stance, author identities online, biased language in capital trials, corpus approaches, false confessions, forensic phonetics, forensic transcription, the historical courtroom, legal interpretation, multilingual law, police crisis negotiation, speaker profiling, and trolling. The chapters include a wealth of examples and case studies so the reader can see forensic linguistics applied and in action.


Edited and authored by the world's leading academics and practitioners, The Routledge Handbook of Forensic Linguistics is a vital resource for advanced students, researchers and scholars, and will also be of interest to legal, law enforcement and security professionals.



'An exciting new edition of the original ground-breaking forensic linguistics handbook, featuring more than 20 new authors, joining almost 30 of the original authors. The new and updated chapters bring additional depth and breadth, and greater global diversity to this valuable resource. A must-read for scholars, researchers and practitioners in the rapidly developing field of language and the law.'


Diana Eades, University of New England, Australia


From reviews of the first edition:


'... the editors have done a masterful job in providing the needed broad coverage in forensic linguistics, and helped the reader to draw connections and to cross-reference between the variety of papers presented.' - Australian Review of Applied Linguistics
