Applied Linguistics in Court.
Gibbons, John
Applied Linguistics, v11 n3 p229-32 Sep 1990
Two issues are addressed: (1) the scope of linguistics, and (2) the social justice issue of police procedures for dealing with limited proficiency speakers of majority languages. These are explored by examining evidence produced by police in court and the language addressed to second-language speakers by police, particularly official cautions. (Author/JL)
