Dr. Rob Leonard, director of Hofstra’s graduate program in forensic linguistics, spoke at the April meeting of the New York chapter of Mystery Writers of America. Forensic linguistics has to do with language and the law and is an area of study that is being increasingly used by law enforcement and homeland security. Some of the nuances of forensic linguistics are very much of interest to mystery and crime writers who want to portray these crime solving or fighting tactics in their novels.
