Satellite Meeting on Elicitation of Forensic Speech Samples

A satellite meeting on Thursday 28th July 2011 will be devoted to the elicitation of forensic speech samples. This includes both interviews for language analysis for the determination of origin (LADO) and reference recordings of suspects for speech sample comparisons.

Presentations for this satellite meeting might include, but are not limited to the following topics:

  • current practices in LADO and in recording of suspects
  • interviewing techniques
  • application of established methods of linguistic field research re data elicitation
  • dealing with disguise and uncooperativeness
  • strategies of less than fully cooperative speakers
  • (dis)advantages of monologues, question-answer formats, repeating sentences, telephone vs. direct interviews etc.
  • sociolinguistic issue

We invite abstracts for this meeting. We specifically aim to have room for sharing experiences and ideas, so that current practice in both LADO and speech sample comparisons may benefit.

This meeting will be organised by Tina Cambier-Langeveld (Immigration and Naturalisation Service, The Netherlands) and by Peter Gottschligg (Vienna.)
