This is a website for students at Washington State University who are enrolled in English 112 during spring 2018.  Others are also welcome to visit, but this site is a required part of English 112.  

The topic of this version of the class is language and the law and we will be discussing 
  1. the development and peculiarities of legal language (the language of statutes, courts and other legal documents);
  2. legal issues that arise from language acts (for example, threats, promises, contracts, perjury, plagiarism and forgery, truth in advertising); and 
  3. language as evidence (dialect and language identification, style identification, voice identification).
