An interesting book for linguists, though I question the validity of his work - the great majority of it seems to be very self-evident, though it is explained in a complicated manner! Who knows - this guy says that he is the only full time forensic linguistics specialist... already something that makes me doubt what he's doing!

A perfect book for the CSI/mystery/true-crime fan 7 juin 2009
Par Lewis Perdue - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Fans of CSI, true crime books and mysteries looking for new plots and unique ways of solving crimes will find Wordcrime a deep and rewarding trove of reading.

Internationally renowned forensic linguist John Olsson has created a work that is both highly readable and factually rigorous. This book simultaneously entertains and educates -- a nearly impossible feat in both fact and fiction.

Indeed, some of the true-crimes have details that would have been unbelievable had they been written as fiction.

Written in bite-sized chapters, Wordcrime takes a "from the files of ..." approach as Olsson explains the origins of some of the hundreds f cases he has worked on. Olsson leads us through the genesis of each crime, the methods he used to sleuth his way to the guilty party, and the resolution.

Olsson devotes a small part of each chapter to explain some facet of forensic linguistics -- brief enough to be entertaining and long enough to impart a substantial degree of understanding.

The Court of Language 13 juillet 2014
Par John M. Ford - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
John Olsson is one of the world's top forensic linguists. He has testified in more than 500 court cases, published numerous research studies, and co-authored (with June Luchjenbroers) one of the field's leading textbooks, Forensic Linguistics. In this book he teaches readers about forensic linguistics using the case study method.

Each of the twenty-three chapters describes a case the author has contributed to as a forensic linguist. He has selected each one to illustrate particular aspects of his work. "My aim is not primarily to tell a good story, but to illustrate how interesting and complex language is, and how powerful a resource it can be when it enters the arena of the law." All of the cases are worth reading. These three are reasonably representative:

Chapter 4, "Is The Da Vinci Code a Plagiarism?" examines an accusation that Dan Brown "borrowed without permission" major plot elements of his bestseller from another writer's book. Olsson addresses this question by examining the order in which the plot elements occur in each book. He also looks at instances where both authors made the same unusual or erroneous word choices. Olsson reports the legal outcome and invites readers to form their own conclusions.

In Chapter 8, "Murder or Suicide," Olsson is hired by the family of a young man who has apparently committed suicide and left a suicide note for his family. Suspicious circumstances lead his family suspect the man was murdered and the note forged by the killer. In reaching his conclusions, Olsson considers both characteristic features of the young man's writing and the tone and content typical of authentic suicide notes.

Chapter 20, "Return to Sender," occurs in the context of a woman's claim that she was sexually assaulted by her psychotherapist. As this trial approached the city's Social Welfare Division received an anonymous letter asserting that the woman suffered from several specific psychological disorders and was unfit to care for her children. Olsson's analysis addressed the scarcity of psychology terminology in everyday language and included a word choice comparison between the letter and the therapist's patient notes.

Each chapter tells an engaging story and showcases at least one linguistic analysis technique. Good reading, a good introduction to the forensic linguistics specialty, and a well-crafted invitation to learn more from the author's weighty text. Nicely done, Dr. Olsson!
Jury still out on forensic linguistics! 22 mars 2012
Par C R - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
What does the way you speak or write reveal about you that you aren't aware of? How can your use of language be argued to show that you wrote the anonymous malicious letter? that you plagiarized the plot to the Da Vinci Code? or that you murdered your spouse and forged the "suicide" note?

How to solve crimes and other mysteries by looking at the way people use language is what this book of 23 chapters is about. Each one contains a unique story that depicts how use of language can leave clues that most people do not recognize.

The author explains that forensic linguistics is a relatively new field--the term first having been used in 1968 and only entering general usage in 1994. What he does not say, and what I highly suspect, is that the jury is still out on whether forensic linguistics can accomplish what it claims.

Although the author loves what he does and is an advocate for the general acceptance of the field, not every chapter casts forensic linguistics in a positive light. One case, the "Prosecutor Memo", argued as a "significant ruling for forensic linguistics" resulted in a real travesty of justice in my opinion. It revealed a serious misunderstanding in the way prosecutors use language. Am I really supposed to believe that a policeman would take the chance of ruining his or her entire career just to get a garden variety DWI conviction? I don't think so. Neither the police nor most prosecutors are that fragile or sensitive.

Still I give the book five stars because provocative ideas--even wrong ones--really stimulate and on balance the book is unique and very interesting. I am fascinated by the proposition that clues can be found in language use and I loved reading the stories--each one a different kind of "who dunn it?"

Hmmm. I wonder what clues I leave behind about me hidden away in this review? :)

About more than crime 3 août 2013

If you like language, this book is interesting. If you're only looking for crime-based entertainment, this is not for you. Some other books on the topic use sensational headline crime stories to pique interest. This book is actually about linguistics. Good stuff, and takes more than one sitting to read.

British pedant whose writing style is labored and awkward.
