"This book brings a wealth of knowledge to the study of language and law. It should be of interest to a wide audience, including sociologists and anthropologists interested in studying such things as power relationships among participants in the legal system through close examination of linguistic behavior. The book more than meets its stated goal, “to open a door on the fascinating and important relationship between language and the law in its many aspects." Lawrence M. Solan, Brooklyn Law School
"John Gibbons' book Forensic Linguistics provides a lucid overview of the general concepts and issues relating to linguistic communication in the justice system." New Zealand Studies in Applied Linguistics
"This is part of Blackwell's excellent Language in Society series, and Gibbon's well-written and broadly engaging textbook continues that tradition... it is already receiving praise from students, students who judge books not only on scholarly content but accessibility... Forensic Linguistics will become the primary text in the growing interdisciplinary field of legal language and discourse." Discourse and Society
