Eight Questions about the Power of Conversational Strategies in Undercover Police Investigations
This chapter demonstrates that cooperating witnesses and law enforcement officers use basically the same conversational strategies in their undercover work. It also points out what makes these strategies so powerful, the usefulness of linguistics in revealing them, why targets get trapped by them, why the prosecution does not often make use of forensic linguistic analysis, and what might be done about this situation.
