Bibliography



Welcome to the bibliography of the IAFL. This is intended to be a resource for both professionals and students researching in forensic linguistics.


Scope

This bibliography is intended to cover all notable references about forensic linguistics. The latter is defined broadly, rather than narrowly, so that some references which are related to the field but are not strictly speaking 'forensic' or 'linguistic' are nevertheless included.

Index to Major Categories

The references have been categorised according to various subject areas which have been popular with authors of forensic linguistic texts. The resulting categories are thus a mixture of terms from several different viewpoints such as: legal document, legal process, type of crime or offence, type of human participant, linguistic discipline, linguistic sub-discipline, and linguistic phenomenon.
