This book covers different aspects of speech and language pathology
and it offers a fairly comprehensive overview of the complexity and
the emerging importance of the field, by identifying and re-examining,
from different perspectives, a number of standard assumptions in
clinical linguistics and in cognitive sciences. The papers encompass
different issues in phonetics, phonology, syntax, semantics, and
pragmatics, discussed with respect to deafness, stuttering, child
acquisition and impairments, SLI, William's Syndrome deficit, fluent
aphasia and agrammatism. The interdisciplinary complexity of the
language/cognition interface is also explored by focusing on empirical
data from different languages: Bantu, Catalan, Dutch, English, German,
Greek, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, and Spanish. The aim of this volume
is to stress the growing importance of the theoretical and
methodological linguistic tools developed in this area; to bring under
scrutiny assumptions taken for granted in recent analyses, which may
not be so obvious as they may seem; to investigate how even apparently
minimal choices in the description of phenomena may affect the form
and complexity of the language/cognition interface.
