Example text

IE: Yeah uh hah IR: Making comments about you? IE: Yeah. IR: And then he sat down? IE: He was-I think he were with a woman, maybe his wife I don’t know, and she were telling him to shut up. Question and answer pairs, though central to talk in many institutional settings (such as news interviews, classroom talk, calls to call centres) have specific roles in police 24 LEGAL TALK interviews and a number of distinctive features. For example in (2) we note that several of the questions begin with ‘and’ or ‘so’ (lines 1, 7, 9, 12 and 16) and we will consider the function of these questions in the next section.

The language of written statutes and contracts and many other legal documents has been described in terms of its complexity (see Bhatia; Stygall; this volume), and legal talk is also remarkably complex in terms of syntax and structure (as we have seen). However, it is more remarkable for what it does; it has specialised institutional functions and pragmatic effects, or as Tiersma (1999: 145) says the courtroom gives us ‘legal language in it most dramatic setting’. In our examination of legal talk, we explore the ‘dramaturgical quality of DRS [direct reported speech]’ and its uses in questions not simply ‘to replay an interaction but also to enable the speaker to simultaneously convey his or her attitude towards the reported utterance’ (Clift and Holt 2007: 7).

Rock (2007), in her discussion of revisions of the Notice to Detained Persons, supports this view in both reference to other research – Solomon 11 J O H N SO N A N D C OU L TH A R D (1996: 289) found that simplification can create ‘friendly’ texts ‘as if this kind of relationship can be assumed’ – and with her ethnographic work.
