This volume functions as a guide to the multidisciplinary nature of Forensic Linguistics understood in its broadest sense as the interface between language and the law. It seeks to address the links in this relatively young field between theory, method and data, without neglecting the need for new research questions in the field. Perhaps the most striking feature of this collection is its range, strikingly illustrating the multi-dimensionality of Forensic Linguistics. All of the contributions share a preoccupation with the painstaking linguistic work involved, using and interpreting data in a restrained and reasoned way.

Table of Contents
“This is an interesting and timely volume as the number of students of Forensic Linguistics is rapidly expanding and there is a shortage of easily accessible supplementary readings. The spread of topic, language of the examples and country of origin of the authors all add to the attractiveness of the volume.”
“The overall impression is that the editors of this volume have brought together a well-balanced selection of papers, ranging across a variety of genres and contexts of production. Furthermore, the professional expertise displayed by some of the contributors adds further nuance to the investigation of the subject. The volume provides valuable insights into this emerging discipline and it is clearly of interest for all practitioners in the field, such as teachers, students and professionals.”

“The 'dimensions' of the title of this book, then, are amply met. The chapters are substantially wider that the scope of the earlier textbooks on forensic linguistics, and re-anchor forensic linguistics in a new set of parameters, where linguistics, as the scientific study of language, is brought to bear in fresh ways on the work of language in the law.”
