Forensic Linguistics Office


The main actions in the office are focused on:

  • Linguistic profiling about interpretation or disambiguation. In cases where there are indecisive or opened to different interpretations statements, a linguistic analysis of the units is done to determine the use the statements were given.
  • Plagiarism detection. By linguistically comparing texts, we specify if two contributions belong to the same person.
  • Authorship profiling. We establish whether an indecisive text belongs to a certain author.
  • Speaker identification. It is a process that helps us identify an unknown speaker thanks to its voice samples. Recognition processes are performed by using a combined method of three of the most extended methods: perceptive, automatic, and spectrographic. We rely on Batvox, the most extended expert voice biometrics tool, accepted in the scientific and proffesional community.
  • Assesment of content in recordings. We establish the content of a recording by a technical transcription. It is really useful in cases in which the format or the recording’s quality prevent its understanding.
  • Recording authentification. We determine if a recording has been edited in case the evidence’s authenticity is in doubt.
  • Expert report elaboration.
