Roger W. Shuy 

The first book to focus on the use of linguistics in perjury cases 

Describes 11 real cases in plain terms and explains how linguistic analysis pertained to each case 

The Language of Perjury Cases outlines the contributions that linguistics can make to both the gathering of evidence and the way that evidence is analyzed 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. 

Shuy's linguistic analysis illustrates how grammatical referencing, speech acts, discourse structure, framing, conveyed meaning, intentionality, and malicious language affected the outcome of these cases. Readership: The Language of Perjury Cases will appeal to students and scholars of applied linguistics and forensic linguistics, and to lawyers involved in perjury cases.
