This chapter summarizes how important it is to start with the speech event when analyzing the language evidence of bribery cases. In some cases the completion phase is absent. In other cases the offer phase is either absent or ambiguous. Sometimes even the problem phase is confused. The chapter then summarizes the way linguistic analysis of schemas, agendas, speech acts, and conversational strategies, related to the alleged smoking gun evidence in each of the twelve cases discussed in this book.

Keywords:   intelligence gathering, intelligence analysis, speech events, schemas, agendas, speech acts, conversational strategies, smoking guns
