Our February 2022 Event: Annina Van Riper: Language as Evidence. Forensic Linguistics in Action

Language is one of the most powerful tools that humans have; the role of a forensic linguist is to analyse how people use this tool at the interface of language and law. Annina Van Riper joined us on Thursday, 17 February 2022 to discuss how linguists use core linguistic tools (e.g. phonetics, syntax, semantics etc.) to examine language in forensic contexts.
