Dear All

We are delighted to announce that the second issue of the recently launched international bilingual bi-annual journal Language and Law / Linguagem e Direito has just been published. This issue, dedicated to Forensic Phonetics, was guest edited by Maria Lúcia de Castro Gomes, Andrea Alves Guimarães Dresch and Denise de Oliveira Carneiro. The issue includes articles written in both English and Portuguese. The contents list of the journal is reproduced at the end of this message.

The journal is in electronic form and available to download free, both from the journal website


and directly from the library of the University of Porto


The journal editors are extremely pleased with the readers’ feedback on volume 1.1, as well as with the response to the call for papers for issue 1.2. Because Language and Law has no printing costs it can be extremely flexible to individual author’s requirements: not only can it publish quickly all the high quality articles it receives, but also it can cope with long appendices, reproduce illustrations, photographs and tables in colour, and embed sound files and hyperlink as necessary. Issues 1.1 and 1.2 are a clear illustration of this point.

We hope that this new issue continues to appeal - both visually and scientifically - to the journal audience, and that it serves to encourage further submissions from researchers worldwide working in the areas of Forensic Linguistics and Language and Law wanting to share their research with the wider academic community through the pages of our journal.

Thank you very much for being part of this new journal.

Happy Reading

Maria Lúcia de Castro Gomes, Andrea Alves Guimarães Dresch & Denise de Oliveira Carneiro (Guest Editors)

Malcolm Coulthard & Rui Sousa-Silva (General Editors)
