Abstract

We evaluate conversational transcripts of deceptive speech using a sophisticated natural language processing tool called Coh-Metrix. Coh-Metrix is unique in that it tracks linguistic features based on social and cognitive factors. The results from Coh-Metrix are compared to linguistic features reported in previous independent deception research, which used a natural language processing tool called LIWC. The comparison provides converging validity for several linguistic features, and establishes new insights on deceptive language.
