Exploring Courtroom Discourse: The Language of Power and Control

By Anne Wagner, Le Cheng
Exploring Courtroom Discourse: The Language of Power and Control
This volume presents a combination of practical, empirical research data and theoretical reflection to provide a comparative view of language and discourse in the courtroom. The work explores how the various disciplines of law and linguistics can help us understand the nature of “Power and Control” – both oral and written – and how it might be clarified to unravel linguistic representation of legal reality. It presents and examines the most recent research and theories at national and international level.
