On the Status of Linguistic Evidence in Litigation

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The author discusses the status of expert linguistic evidence in common law
systems of England and the USA. Then he touches upon the issue of linguistic evidence
in Poland. It is concluded that the scientific validity of expert evidence is only one of
the determinants of its legal status. It appears that the status of linguistic evidence in the
legal setting is simultaneously conditioned by factors other than the scientific actuality
of expert findings.
