HANNES KNIFFKA is Professor of General and Applied Linguistics at Bonn University, Germany.

Reviews

'...is an impressive work that should certainly enjoy wide readership within the language& law community. For those who have a curiosity about FL, this work, while technical, is accessible and nuanced. For those who have a strong interest in FL, especially those practitioners of authorship attribution and language crimes, WLLGP epitomizes the type of care that should be performed in FL analyses. This could only have been achieved by someone of Kniffka's caliber, experience and ability in balancing the fields of linguistics and law.' - Linguist
