The course will use data from actual cases taken from the FBI Behavioral Analysis Unit, U.S., State, and local police, and will discuss the path from investigation to prosecution in U.S. courts. This course demonstrates how forensic linguistics augments legal analysis by applying rigorous, scientifically accepted principles of linguistic analysis to legal evidence such as letters, confessions, contracts and recorded speech. Topics include linguistic theory, the structure of meaning systems and their arbitrary nature, sociolinguistic analysis of variation in dialect and language, the apparent "sub-dialects" of American makes and females, gestures, intercultural communication, language and social organization, and the role of standard dialects, non-standard varieties, and slang in delineating social groups.
