Through their education and experience buy trental 400 mg, expert witnesses can provide the court with an assessment or opinion within their area of competence buy discount trental 400 mg on line, which is not considered to be the domain of other professionals in court buy 400 mg trental fast delivery, such as the lawyers and the judge 400 mg trental with mastercard. The aim of this study is to investigate medical discourse in historical criminal trials in order to ascertain whether specific discursive practices were employed. The offence considered is infanticide and the narratives, cross-examinations and re-examinations involving doctors, physicians, pathologists, practitioners and ‘masters in surgery’ are investigated both quantitatively and qualitatively, providing examples of medical testimony which give a specialist and authoritative account of the physical examination of both victims and murderers. It has been observed that specific discursive practices account for the search for “balance between credibility and comprehensibility” (Cotterill 2003: 196) in a context where the discourse is to be considered both professional/lay and inter-professional (Linell 1998: 143). Medical experts find themselves simultaneously engaged in these two types of discourse: their testimonies are in fact for the benefit of a lay jury and lay people in general who lack understanding of and experience with both the legal and the medical genres and jargon. Additionally, the interactional dyad lawyer/medical expert can be considered to be an inter-professional type of discourse inasmuch as two competing modes of reasoning represent profession-specific approaches to the particular case in hand. Nowadays, expert witnesses occupy a unique position in court trials: unlike lay witnesses, they have more privileges and prerogatives, such as the right to give lengthier answers, to contradict their interlocutors, as well as to draw conclusions and express opinions on the strength of their experience and expertise. Outside the courtroom setting, they enjoy the same professional status and social standing of lawyers and judges, thanks to their competence and domain knowledge. However, since the witness box is a place outside their professional context, the experts are subject to the rule and role constraints which characterize the courtroom trial (2003: 168). As Linell (1998: 144) points out, this is because human beings wander between situations, just as discourse and discursive content travel across situations. The present chapter starts from an investigation of the position of expert witnesses in the historical courtroom, since it seems that in the past they did not enjoy the same social status and professional standing as their present-day colleagues. Additionally, as one might expect when dealing with historical data, especially spoken texts such as trial proceedings and witness testimonies, other questions such as The Old-Bailey Proceedings: Medical Discourse in Criminal Cases 233 source validity and accuracy may arise and these too merit close scrutiny. Materials and methodology The present study has drawn upon various studies which have dealt with courtroom discourse from wide-ranging, though often complementary, perspectives. A certain number of investigations looked at the socio-pragmatic aspects of courtroom discourse and are sometimes based on the description and exploration of actual courtroom proceedings, such as those in Atkinson and Drew (1979), Cotterill (2003), and Heffer (2005). Among these, some are conversationally-oriented studies looking at language in interaction in various institutional contexts and focus on the interactional dynamics of the courtroom, such as turn-taking and the sequential organization of discourse, for instance Heritage (2004), and Thornborrow (2002). Furthermore, the particular role of expert witnesses in the court- room and the fundamental matters of identity, credibility, power and social relationships therein, together with the ways these are negotiated through discourse, are discussed in depth by Chaemsaithong (2012), Maley (2000), and Stygall (2001). For the purpose of this chapter, useful insights were also gained from works about historical courtroom discourse such as those by Archer (2005) Chaemsaithong, (2011), Kryk-Kastovsky (2000; 2006), and those on historical data based on spoken interaction, e. The data for the present investigation are drawn from the Old Bailey Proceedings website which contains the proceedings of English criminal trial sessions from 1674 to 1913, after which publication came to a sudden halt. The earlier corpus built for this purpose entailed a first stage search for transcripts in the website containing 234 Michela Giordano the keywords doctor, surgeon, physician, practitioner, pathologist in the texts, since it was presumed that their presence in the text might demonstrate the actual involvement of such professionals and their practice in the unfolding of the trial. In the second stage, the search was narrowed down to trial accounts from January 1900 to December 1913, the last year in which the proceedings were published. Table 2 only contains the fourteen trials in which medical examinations were discussed and shows the total number of words in each transcript, the number of medical experts who testified in each trial and the number of words in the medical examinations. Despite the relatively small amount of data analysed, the results obtained do substantiate the conviction that the testimonies examined are representative of medical discourse in the th legal context in the early 20 century. It is worth noting that the transcripts in the website do not generally report the lawyers’ or judges’ questions, which were often omitted or abridged in the Proceedings. It is equally important to reiterate that the discourse in exami- nations was organized into a series of question and answer pairs, where both the turn order and the type of turn allocated to each party are fixed and pre-determined, as can be expected when dealing with a type of institutional discourse where specific forms of interaction are embedded in specific workplace contexts (Atkinson/Drew 1979; Thornborrow 2002; Heritage 2004). However, abridgments in the Proceedings were unavoidable since complete transcripts would have been uneconomic to publish because, as the website itself recounts, “publishers sought to make the trials readable and entertaining by presenting testimony unencumbered by legal and procedural details”. Therefore, the largest amount of missing information concerns the role played by lawyers and judges, such as statement by counsel, opening statement by the prosecution, cross-examinations and judges’ summing up, which were habitually excluded. Despite the abridgments, the Old Bailey Proceedings website represents an invaluable historical corpus that facilitates both The Old-Bailey Proceedings: Medical Discourse in Criminal Cases 237 diachronic socio-linguistic and socio-pragmatic research. Although this study will not take a diachronic perspective, but will conduct a synchronic analysis of expert witness narratives and discursive th strategies in trials in the early 20 century, trials and expert witness testimonies undoubtedly represent a good example of spoken language data from earlier periods and moreover provide an invaluable source of information on the participants’ age, sex, status, culture, and their relationship in a specific context and setting which would not otherwise be available. This seems to be one of the major obstacles that historical pragmatics has to face: knowledge of the spoken interaction of the past is only confined to what can be gleaned from written records (Culpeper/Kytö 2000). In considering the value of the Old Bailey Proceedings as a source of historical data, it is important to remember that even if they “do not provide a full transcript of everything that was said in court”, as the website itself states, the materials reported can be considered accurate and their reliability has often been confirmed by other manuscripts or published records which can be checked using multiple sources or a ‘triangulation’ procedure, as suggested by Culpeper and Kytö (2010). Additionally, it can be presumed that the trials under scrutiny here, occurring in a period between 1902 and 1913, were very likely to have undergone a comparison with other reports or alternative accounts before publication. As Culpeper and Kytö (2000: 188) explain, many trial proceedings were designed for general public consumption and “sometimes part of the marketing strategy was to claim, usually in the title page, that the proceeding was a ‘true’ or ‘faithful’ record taken in court”. The same authors later state that the important factor in this kind of historical research is that “the historical speech report purports to be a faithful report” (Culpeper/Kytö 2010: 81). The inquiry will focus on the managing of specific medical lexis and phraseology (such as, for 238 Michela Giordano example, the expressions a separate existence, puerperal fever and transitory mania) and their embedding in the legal context of which the particular setting and situation call for explanations and clarifications of meanings unknown to the lay jury, the lawyers and the judge himself as well as most of the people present in the courtroom. Medical experts in the historical courtroom The present chapter analyses the position and the discourse of medical experts in the historical courtroom: the adjective historical here carries multiple meanings. The first and more straightforward one is that which alludes to the old period being considered, in this case the decade 1902-1913, more than a century ago. The second meaning points to the distinction between the salient features of early courtrooms and the present-day ones and looks at what insights present-day courtroom linguistic studies can gain from the investigations of early or historical courtroom discourse. More precisely, the expression historical courtroom is utilised by authors such as Kryk-Kastovky (2000, 2006), Jucker (2008) and Chaemsaithong (2011), who see the courtroom of earlier periods as the site from which examples of original spoken language of the past can be derived. Following this, the historical linguist or pragmatist is confronted with the question of how the written data available nowadays actually reflects the language spoken in that given historical period, in order to understand the “conventions of language use in communities that once existed and are no longer accessible for direct observation” (Archer 2005: 6). However, the same author reports that, already in 1554, a judge declared, The Old-Bailey Proceedings: Medical Discourse in Criminal Cases 239 If matters arise in our law which concern other sciences or faculties we com- monly apply for the aid of that science or faculty, which it concerns. For thereby it appears that we don’t despise all other sciences but our own, but we approve of them and encourage them, as things worthy of recommendation. Historically, experts could in fact participate as specialist jurors whose particular knowledge was gained from their personal experience and th th training. In the late 13 and 14 centuries, such specialist juries were generally composed of goldsmiths, aldermen, cooks, fishmongers and masters of grammar who used their specialized knowledge to render their verdict (Chaemsaithong 2011). Towards the early modern period, there began a constant and continual decline in the use of a knowledgeable and informed jury that was entrusted with a “fact- finding, investigatory role” (Stygall 2001: 331). It was gradually replaced with a silent and uninformed jury whose responsibility was merely to consider evidence and testimony from the other witnesses in a trial. Thus, expert witnesses became necessary to give specialised testimony and evidence that would better inform the jury about the case before pronouncing their verdict (Chaemsaithong 2011). Since they had personally observed the facts and testified as to their conclusions, they could express their opinions; yet these were not differentiated from those of lay jurors who could do exactly the same, basing themselves on their direct knowledge of the facts of the case (Golan 2003). Furthermore, what must be borne in mind is that the growth of expert knowledge in fields such as medicine and its recognition as such is a relatively recent phenomenon, dating back to about the end th of the 19 century. This was of course the result of the growing reliance on science and the simultaneous rise of university and mass education systems that helped to legitimize the privileged status of 240 Michela Giordano experts, resulting from their professional expertise, capability and competence (Chaemsaithong 2011).
