Does language really matter? Definitely, yes! Especially in the area of Forensic Linguistics (FL), language is the key element. But what is Forensic Linguistics and what is its purpose? Is it only about language and the law or is it connected to other fields of practice? Where can you study it? What famous cases have used this special science? This post will answer these and other questions.
One of the main goals of Forensic Linguistics is to provide a careful and systemic analysis of language. The results of this analysis can be used by many different professionals. For example, police officers can use this evidence not only to interview witnesses and suspects more effectively but also to solve crimes more reliably. Lawyers, judges and jury members can use these analyses to help evaluate questions of guilt and innocence more fairly. And translators and interpreters can use this research to communicate with greater accuracy. Forensic Linguistics serves justice and helps people to find the truth when a crime has been committed.
