About this book

The Language of Sexual Crime explores the role of language in the construction of identity of both perpetrators and victims of sexual violence, the ways in which language is used in the detection of sexually-motivated crime, and the articulation/manipulation of language in police interviews, the courtroom and the media.

Reviews

"As with any collected volume of work, there is a degree of variance in the quality of submissions. In this case, however, the range is simply from excellent to superb. Novices in the field are presented alongside veterans from the Forensic Linguistic circuit, and they keep up with the expectations of rigid, thorough, and professional scholarship that has become the standard in this area of study. Janet Cotterill has certainly selected and assembled an impressive collection of work that will contribute to advances in the research of criminal acts, and specifically sexual crime, for many years to come."

- Kerry Linfoot, Department of English, United States Air Force Academy
