Detective detectives, who often work in small teams, often work with other detectives in a larger task force.
They often have to use the same tools to find a suspect.
But sometimes, detectives talk about their work in a different way, according to new research from the University of Cambridge.
The research, published online in the journal PLOS ONE, used a dataset of 1.6 million articles collected from the online encyclopedia The Phrasebook.
In a small group, detectives had to identify each other and use words like “toward” or “in the way” to refer to each other.
The researchers used the results to see if there was any difference in their talk about the same subject.
The results showed that detectives tended to use words that sounded similar to the word “to,” such as “to be,” “for a while,” or “as I’m saying.”
In addition, they used words that were less common, such as the word for “in,” “as we’re saying,” or the word with a negative connotation.
“I think there is a tendency for people to talk about themselves as if they were talking about themselves,” said lead author Alexander Vygin, an assistant professor in the School of Social Sciences and International Studies at the University.
“So, the detective may say something like, ‘I’m just talking to myself.’
And they might say, ‘Well, what’s that you’re talking about?
I’m talking to my colleagues.'”
Detectives also talk about each other’s work more than they talk about other people’s work, according a study published in the same journal.
The researchers looked at the use of “slightly” or “-ingly” words, which are used to indicate that they have a positive opinion about someone or a positive view of something.
The more positive the words, the more often detectives use them.
“If we have a detective who thinks about his colleagues, we should expect him to talk more about the work of his colleagues,” Vykin said.
“It would be nice if there were more of that.”
Detectives may also talk to each others’ colleagues, according the new study, but they may talk to their own colleagues more often.
In the end, the researchers concluded that the words detectives used to refer each other were less descriptive than they sounded, suggesting that detectives may talk about a wide range of subjects that they are not interested in discussing with others.
“In the first few years of their career, the detectives were probably not interested, but then it’s become a part of their job,” Vrygin said.
“This is something that we have to learn about in order to really get a grip on the language we’re using.”
