Summary/Abstract: This article addresses the issue of evidential analysis in forensic linguistics, focusing on its interdisciplinary aspects. They are conditioned by recent developments in modern linguistics, the specific needs of the analyzed material (such as farewell letters), as well as the requirements of law. In the expert opinion, the expert must take into account the admissibility requirements of scientific evidence, but also present the adopted methodology and the data analysis in a clear, precise, and professional manner, so as to make sure that lawyers are able to perform further procedural decisions.
