Language & Lies

Was just reading on a completely different topic, but one I read this I immediately thought of the McCann's. Thought I'd share.

[b style="box-sizing: border-box;"]How words give them away (Psychopaths)    [/b]Jeffrey Hancock.
To examine the emotional content of the murderers' speech, Hancock and his colleagues looked at a number of factors, including how frequently they described their crimes using the past tense. The use of the past tense can be an indicator of psychological detachment, and the researchers found that the psychopaths used it more than the present tense when compared with the nonpsychopaths. They also found more dysfluencies — the "uhs" and "ums" that interrupt speech — among psychopaths. Nearly universal in speech, dysfluencies indicate that the speaker needs some time to think about what they are saying.
