Nini and Linguistics Postgrads investigate

Posted on August 25, 2018 by



Andrea Nini works relentlessly to keep the Crime section of Manchet going. In his latest assignment, Andrea and his forensics team, including but not limited to: Fatma Hamaid, Jiaqi Zhang, Christoper Powell, Sarah Mahmood, Lisa Donlan, and Guadalupe Pulido Casas, investigate the case of John Titor. This case is unusual, as it involves not only a question of authorship, but also time travel and its often overlooked complication, language change.

Read the following blogpost to find out more about the case, and learn some tricks of the forensic linguistics trade.

If you’re a time traveller, and want tips on how to blend in language-wise, you can DM Manchet via Facebook and Twitter.
