Phonetics, Forensic [link]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
The term `forensic phonetics' refers to the application of phonetic expertise to forensic questions. Forensic phonetics was a relatively new area at the beginning of the 1990s. The kind of activity that its practitioners are probably most frequently involved in is forensic speaker identification. Forensic phoneticians may act as expert witnesses in a court of law and testify as to whether or not a speech sample produced by an unknown speaker involved in the commission of a crime originates from the same speaker as a reference sample that is produced by a known speaker, the accused. Other activities in which forensic phoneticians may be engaged are speaker characterization or profiling, intelligibility enhancement of tape-recorded speech, the examination of the authenticity and integrity of audiotape recordings, the analysis and interpretation of disputed utterances, as well as the analysis and identification of non-speech sounds or background noise in evidential recordings. In addition, forensic phoneticians may collaborate with forensic psychologists to assess the reliability of speaker recognition by earwitnesses.
