Qs: Language as a Diagnostic Criterion for Psychosis
Editor for this issue: Dan Parker
We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was
instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.
In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.
Dear colleagues, Can anyone point me in the direction of studies on language and speech patterns used in the diagnosis of psychotic illnesses? This could be general discussions of diagnostic criteria from a linguistic or psychological/psychiatric point of view, or reports on clinical trials. I am particularly interested in schizophrenia.
