Chapter Summary

This case-study is about a dense process in event, a relatively short time-span not much longer than a working day. The study is focussed on the barrister's jottings, here in a case of "wounding with intent". The jottings provide insights into the barrister's modulation of case-material for all practical purposes. The case-study explores the interplay of paperwork and speech. This perspective goes back to Goffman's late studies of speech-production. Goffman distinguished "three main modes of animating spoken words: memorisation, aloud reading, and fresh talk".

Keywords: barrister's jottings; case of wounding; Goffman
