Now in its third edition, John Olsson's practical introduction to forensic linguistics is required reading for students of language and the law.

This third edition has been revised, expanded and updated throughout, and includes new chapters on identifying forensic texts and important interactional aspects of the language used in legal contexts. There is also a substantial chapter on forensic phonetics by Harry Hollien, a world renowned forensic phonetician. The book includes an appendix of forensic texts for student study, and even more exercises and suggestions for further reading.

This practical introduction to forensic linguistics is based on Olsson's extensive experience as a practising forensic linguist and as lecturer on dozens of courses worldwide. Olsson s work has been successfully combined with Luchjenbroers research into the language used to and by criminals, witnesses and legal professionals, to become essential reading for students, and researchers encountering this branch of applied linguistics for the first time.

Review:

[A]n extremely useful book for students and practitioners in a broad range of fields ... [including] law students, practising lawyers, students of applied linguistics, criminologists [and] police officers ... One of the strengths of the book is that real-life legal cases are referred to when illustrating theoretical points ... [A]n informative and accessible text. * New Zealand Studies in Applied Linguistics * This book is vital reading for students and researchers of forensic linguistics and will undoubtedly help to cement interest in the field. It is stunningly comprehensive, addressing a generous range of forensic-related themes and issues: from cyber-terrorism to suicide notes. It takes in spoken, written and computer-mediated communication, examines, in detail, key studies and cases, and is written in a limpid and engaging style. The book also usefully includes a number of practical exercises and insightful commentaries which will prove invaluable to readers wishing to sharpen their forensic analytical sensibilities. This new edition of Forensic Linguistics is a joy to read, and I will be recommending it to all of my students interested in the interface between language and society. -- Kevin Harvey, Lecturer in Applied Sociolinguistics, University of Nottingham, UK
