New in Paperback

'Psychiatrists could better help their patients by adding linguistic
analysis, which is well introduced here, to listening to their patients.'
-Andrew Sims, Royal College of Psychiatrists, The British Journal of
Psychiatry, Volume 192, Issue 3, March 2008

'On the whole, this book is interesting and stimulating, especially for
those psychiatric practioners who pay attention to and are fascinated by
the ever-challenging connections between verbal and nonverbal
communications as they characterize and help identify neuropsychiatric
disorders.'
-Louis A. Gottschalk,MD, PhD, The Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease,
Volume 195, Number 8, August 2007

'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. 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, Cardiff University

'Written and edited by an internationally recognized linguist who focuses
on psychopathology, this book is a welcome addition to the psychiatric
literature.'
-Michael J. Schrift, University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine,
Doody's Notes, January 2007

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. 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.

Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics
