Subject: Sum: Linguistics for speech therapists
Last week I posted the following query:

>A colleague has asked me to post the following request:

>Can anyone suggest suitable reading material, approximately 500 pages,
>about "clinical linguistics", i.e., linguistics as a basis for speech
>therapists/correctionists? No previous knowledge of linguistics should
>be presupposed. The language should be English (or a Scandinavian
>language, but we more or less know that such material does not exist
>in those languages).

My colleague Kolbjoern Slethei and I are grateful to the following for very
useful references:
