Forensic linguistics is the application of the tools, concepts and analytical techniques of linguistics to legal issues involving language. It has at least 13 sub-disciplines, of which I practice four. My expertise in these legal applications derives from my linguistic studies in granmmar, semantics, phonetics, dialectology, language change, lexigcography, and stylistics, as well as from my many years of writing and editing experience. Here is how all of this experience applies to legal cases:.
Forensic Semantics: Analysis of and expert opinion on the meaning of words, phrases, clauses, paragraphs, etc., in legal, personal, and commercial communication (e.g., interpretation of contracts, wills, prenuptial agreements, laws and regulations; trademark/copyright infringement).
Forensic Stylistics: Analysis of the syntax, style, word choice, spelling, punctuation, rhetorical strategies, and other features of anonymous, disputed, or forged documents (including e-mails); expert opinion on plagiarism, authorship and/or characteristics of author.
