Developing Forensic Communication


In any way, criminal doers more likely to avoid the legal punishment. One of the possible ways is making statements or narrations to camouflage their crimes. Here we found a forensic communication: is there any evil intention hidden the words. To develop forensic communication, I would like to explain discourse analysis techniques to find the motive and purpose. For a forensic method, discourse analysis technique has not been yet widely used in the disclosure of the crime.



Keywords: crime, narration, forensic communication, discourse analysis
