This study draws on over 150 hours of courtroom speech recorded in a North Carolina court. It looks at the ethnography of courtroom speech, and contains social psychological experiments focused on the effects of different modes of presenting information in courts of law. The research involves four major sets of linguistic variables: "powerful" versus "powerless" speech; hypercorrect versus formal speech; narrative versus fragmented testimony; and simultaneous speech by witnesses and lawyers. All these studies emphasize the importance of form over content of testimony.
