Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The present study examined the linguistic markers for both truthful and deceptive statements of children and adults. Child and adult mock courtroom testimony was analyzed using Linguistic Inquiry and Word Count software (LIWC). Previous research has examined the differences in adults’ language when describing either a true or untruth event (Newman, Pennebacker, Berry, & Richards, 2003; Bond & Lee, 2005). Results revealed both similarities and differences when children’s deceptive reports were compared to adults’ reports. Adult raters were unable to discriminate between true and false reports. They had a truth bias for children’s reports. Results will be discussed in terms of legal applications.
