Book review: the language of perjury cases

By Kate Haworth


The Language of Perjury Cases outlines the contributions that linguistics can make to both the gathering of evidence and the way that evidence is analysed in 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. Kate Haworth is disappointed by the lack of analytical detail, and feels that this book is perhaps best seen as a good starting point for the curious, especially lawyers, to gain insight into the types of case in which linguists can be useful
