The likelihood of encountering aphasic patients who speak a language other
than the one of the clinic in which they are assessed is rapidly increasing
to the point of becoming commonplace. It is therefore more important than
ever to become aware of the manifestations of aphasia in languages other
than one's own. A number of factors conspire to influence the symptoms in
each language, from phonological and morphosyntactic structure of the
language, to frequency of obligatory contexts, importance of the form for
derivation of meaning, and degree of redundancy. Therefore the same
underlying deficit may cause different surface manifestations in different
languages. The characteristic symptoms of 14 languages of Germanic,
Finno-Ugrian, Indo-Iranian, Romance, Semitic, and Slavic language families
are described in the volume, namely, African American English, Afrikaans,
Basque, Catalan, Czech, Farsi (Persian), Finnish, Friulian, Greek, Hebrew,
Hungarian, Polish, Spanish and Swedish.

This is the fourth in a series of books commissioned by the International
Association of Logopedics and Phoniatrics and published under the Pergamon
