There are many reasons for writing a book; this one was conceived and devel oped mainly for two. First, a new area has emerged from within the forensic sciences-that of forensic phonetics. As with all new specialties, it is necessary to define it, identify its boundaries, justify its importance and compile a list of the elements it encompasses. This book attempts to outline these several rela tionships. Second, over the past decade I have become fascinated with forensics in general and the rapidly expanded subarea of forensic phonetics in particular. Admittedly, the latter field is one that is not as yet sufficiently appreciated-and much more needs to be known about its nature and extent. Yet, I have found it to be a most enjoyable area of study and my attempts to describe its domains were quite informative. It was especially interesting to struggle with the interfaces between forensic phonetics and related fields, and discover how they overlap. Only a few comments will be made about the book's contents here in the preface. For one thing, they are described in some detail in the first chapter.

Become A Human Lie And Truth Detector Lying is an ingrained instinct. Humans learn to lie by the age of three and just keep on lying into adulthood. On average, people will lie 3 times or more in a ten minute conversation with a stranger or acquaintance. Does this sound unbelievable? Or maybe, you just don't know how to spot the lies. There are many types of lies in this world: little white lies, big lies, small lies, omissions, exaggerations, and unconscious lies. Everyone lies at some point in their life. However, some people do it more often than others. It can lead to an immense amount of frustration when dealing with habitually dishonest people. It may be a teenager that you suspect isn't telling the entire truth about their late-night out or a co-worker is constantly bragging about achievements that you doubt they completed. You may have a relative that always denies what they said at that last family gathering or maybe you just want your spouse to tell you what they actually think about your newest sweater. Regardless of the circumstances, there are often many everyday situations that make you want to know the complete truth. But how does one go about finding out if someone is actually lying? Most people can only successfully spot a lie about 50% of the time. Many people also think that only polygraphs can tell when people are lying. But what if you could become a human polygraph? What if you could tell if someone was lying simply by the way they said something or the facial expression they used? If this sounds like an appealing prospect, strap yourself into the lie detector's chair with the "Liar Detector." In this guide you'll learn: Psychological motives behind lying Physical body language of falsehoods Verbal cues to pick up lies in one's words Subtleties to spot dishonesty in the digital age Guidelines on when and how to confront the fibber Strategies to both detect the lie and draw out the truth Applications for confidence in lie detection and confrontation And much more! By learning these new techniques, you can embolden yourself with new lie-detecting skills and become a real-life human lie detector to detect all kinds of deceptions from those around you.
