A practical research of felony Proofs of legal reason is an in depth research of proofs of legal reason in Israeli courtrooms. The publication analyses linguistic, pragmatic, interpretative and argumentative recommendations utilized by Israeli legal professionals and judges in an effort to research the defendant’s purpose. There may be without doubt that this topic is valuable of a radical research. A person’s purpose is a mental phenomenon and consequently, until the defendant chooses to admit his cause, it can't be confirmed without delay – both via facts or through witnesses’ tales. The defendant’s goal needs to be inferred often from the general situations of the case; verbal and situational contexts, cultural and ideological assumptions and implicatures may be taken into consideration. The linguistic research of those inferences provided this is inevitably finished: it calls for attention of numerous theoretical frameworks together with speech act thought, discourse research, argumentation thought, polyphony conception and textual content linguistics.

In order to study the linguistic methods enabling implication of causation . For a discussion on the distinction between result offences whose characterization depends on inducing certain harmful results and offences whose existence depends on certain circumstances determining the negative value of the conduct constituting the offence, see Feller (1984: 381).

Russell (1986) explained that the common sense notion of causality presupposes that the “effect” comes into existence immediately after the “cause”. Assuming that time has the structure of the mathematical continuum, he concluded that the common sense notion of causality is meaningless since, in the mathematical continuum, “the event taking place immediately after a given event” is an empty description (p. 177).
