The Language of Deception
A Discourse Analytical Study



© 2000 | 155 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
This book employs a discourse analytical approach to the study of deception. It focuses on the deceptive messages themselves - how language is used to deceive others and what kinds of linguistic devices are used. The author develops a theory of deception based on his study of debates and interviews of American and British politicians.
