Transitivity in Courtroom Language: A Unified Solution

Project description

Delving deeper into the language used in courtrooms

With regard to forensic linguistics, research is lacking in transitivity – a well-known analytical framework used in systemic functional grammar. It is also lacking in the study of wrongful convictions. The EU-funded TICLAUS project will implement critical discourse analysis and corpus linguistics techniques to study language in order to advance theory in the systemic functional linguistics field. This will enhance the two transitivity systems currently used in linguistics. It will also show how a transitivity examination of language use in courts or through informal interviews with rape victims and those who have been wrongfully imprisoned for rape can give a better understanding of how two types of victims interpret their experience.
