Basic Forensic Linguistic Skills: How Text Sensitive Are You?

By: Dr. Alan Perlman

A forensic linguist must be exquisitely sensitive to nuances of text. Where a synonym exists, the very choice of each word represents a decision on the part of the author. Superimposed upon that is the way the word is spelled, abbreviated or capitalized. Truly, a text is a tangle of choices.
