Abstract

This article provides an overview to the field of forensic linguistics. Forensic linguistics is a subfield of applied linguistics and is concerned with language relating to the law and forensic settings. Due to the expansive nature of this relatively new field, only the main areas of forensic linguistics are considered (these should by no means be considered the limits of forensic linguistics). Through a discussion of casework and research, this article aims to increase awareness and provide an introduction into the field of forensic linguistics and its potential applications.
