'Linguistics for Clinicians' provides an introduction to linguistic
analysis in the clinical context. The book draws on a range of
linguistic theories and descriptions, equipping readers with a
conceptual toolkit that will enable them to:

-Analyze data systematically, taking into account different types of
linguistic properties
-Pick out significant patterns that can give them clinically relevant
-Build explicit arguments to back up their observations and
-Select relevant linguistic items for assessment and therapy tasks.

Analytical tips are included to anticipate and deal with common
problems of clinical application. Extensive exercises further
illustrate the use of linguistic concepts in data analysis and task
construction. Linguistics for Clinicians is primarily a linguistics
textbook for students and teachers in clinical courses. It is also a
useful resource for practicing clinicians, psycholinguistics students
and researchers in language impairments.
