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.

Roger W. Shuy is Emeritus Professor of Linguistics at Georgetown University.
"If a scholar has something to communicate to his or her peers that will be of interest to them but that will also be of great use to another audience--an audience not of scholars but practitioners? Can an author serve these two masters? If the evidence is the work of Roger Shuy, the answer is yes...I intend to keep this book as a part of my offce reference library and recommend it and lend it out often when colleagues have need of a professional's perspective on the constant interplay between language and the law. To the linguists who make up my audience in writing this review, I make the same recommendation. The book is an excellent way to introduce even sceptical attorneys to the benefits of consultation and collaboration with forensic linguists on many cases."--he International Journal of Speech, Language, and the Law
