Hate Speech

This project will take a more measured approach than that evident in the press by looking at the use of hate speech from a linguistic perspective, bringing together work in law and criminology in a project in which corpus linguists can inform the debate. The proposed research will explore to what extent we can evidentially determine linguistic triggers for prosecution, and hence a linguistic warrant for action. 


Principal Investigator: Paul Iganski
