Discourse Analysis and Detecting Deception

DiscourseStudies have shown that analysing written transcripts of speech resulted in more accuracy at detecting deceit than analysing non-verbal & verbal behaviour. This is this main reason why I’ve included an introduction to discourse analysis in the Intermediate 202 Program – to increase overall accuracy!

I’ve written in another post why I feel that discourse approach is important in research, why more attention needs to be made to critical psychology – and for these reasons – why discourse analysis is another important tool for determining truth from lies.
