Summary This case study demonstrates the benefits of cognitive linguistic methods in the analysis of legal transcripts, in particular, the applications of discourse space theory, a recent cognitive linguistic theory developed by Professor Paul Chilton. Using text from a case tried before the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, these methods show us that there is more to be analysed in these transcripts than questions of law - linguistic methods can tell us more about the frames of mind of those testifying in court, which in turn reveals much about communities struggling to renew after ethnic conflict
