Books Info:

The Language of Sexual Crime free pdf The Language of Sexual Crime draws on authentic data from rape, sexual assault and abuse cases involving both adults and children. It is both a timely and important collection in the context of global statistics which suggest that crimes involving sexual violence are on the increase, and that conviction rates are falling. Linguists, psychologists, police officers and lawyers involved with cases of sexual crime, all of whom are represented in this book, are currently engaged in exploring ways of improving questioning techniques with both suspects and victims, in police interviews and in the courtroom. The Language of Sexual Crime considers: the law and language of rape, sexual assault, sexual abuse- the detection of sexually-motivated crime through linguistic analysis- police interview techniques used with victims and perpetrators- examination and cross-examination of victims and perpetrators at trial- judicial reports and public inquiries involving sexual abuse or assault cases- the reporting of rape or sexual assault cases in the media.
