Now in paperback, "The Handbook of Clinical Linguistics" brings together an international team of contributors to produce an original and in-depth survey of this multi-faceted field. It fills a gap in the existing literature as the first non- encyclopedic volume to provide comprehensive, up to date coverage of this ever-expanding area of linguistics.
Relevant chapters include a range of pathologies, with each section exploring multilingual and cross-linguistics aspects of the field, as well as analytical methods and assessment. In those chapters examining a specific area of linguistics, a section has been included which outlines how mainstream theories and descriptions of language have been influenced, if at all, by clinical research. The result is an essential resource for students and practitioners of speech- language pathology, linguistics, psychology, and education.
