Abstract:

This book is designed to enable clinicians and clinicians in training to
become sensitive to a wide range of language phenomena that are important
for the diagnosis, treatment and research of psychiatric disorders. The
introductory chapters assume no prior knowledge of linguistics and outline
an approach to language that focuses on meaning and communication ranging
from cultural issues to syntax and intonation.

The volume deals in turn with the major categories of syndromes in
psychiatry which have language as an important characterizing feature.
Linguistic concepts are keyed to diagnostic criteria to make the material
accessible to the practitioner. For each disorder, the diagnostic criteria
that are related to language are outlined in specific linguistic terms.
Thus the familiar diagnostic criteria are enriched with linguistic
description that ranges from aspects of culture that constrain what can
make sense in the society to aspects of intonation and wording. The volume
is supplemented with appendices that link the diagnostic criteria to the
language features that are heard. Over 50 tables and diagrams provide
summary information linking psychiatric categories, language features and
language examples.



"Fine has a high reputation for publishing across a range of clinical
conditions from anxiety states to the Pervasive Developmental Disorders and
is possibly the most currently highly qualified professional to write this
handbook. He has used everyday language and clear examples of normal and
deviant texts to describe and explain problems of intonation, meaning,
phonology, grammar and pragmatics. The clinician and general practitioner
(general practitioner or Psychiatrist) could open this book and find out
forthwith why his/her patient sounds odd."
Bill Fraser, Emeritus Professor of Psychiatry, University of Wales College
of Medicine
