Alison May, University of Leeds, United Kingdom
Dr Alison Johnson's research is in corpus-based forensic linguistics, language in legal settings. Her work draws on and informs pragmatic, discourse, and interactional sociolinguistic theory. She is an active member of the International Association of Forensic Linguists (IAFL), the International Pragmatic Association (IPrA), and the International Society for Conversation Analysis, and has presented papers regularly at conferences organised by these associations. Her research interests include the sister areas of authorship studies and plagiarism. Her current work on authorship is focused on markers of authorial style in the Enron email corpus and she supervises a AHRC-funded research student working on this data (which contains around 176 employees and 2.5 million words of email). She is also working on historical forensic linguistic research, using the Old Bailey Proceedings 1674-1913, a corpus of nearly 200,000 criminal trials. Recent conference papers and forthcoming articles focus on a sub-corpus of 250 Old Bailey rape trials in the 18th century and the role of medical experts and defence barristers in 19th century trials involving an insanity defence. Formerly a police officer for six years, Dr Johnson's doctoral research explored the use of questions in police interviews with both adults and children and she continues this research in published articles on narrative evaluation in the police interview, the use of quotation in interviewing and trial discourse, and impoliteness in trial discourse. She is co-author of An Introduction to Forensic Linguistics: Language in Evidence (2007) and co-editor of The Routledge Handbook of Forensic Linguistics (2010) (with Malcolm Coulthard).
