Title: Aphasia Research - Non-Fluent Aphasia in a Multilingual World
Written By: Audrey L. Holland
Loraine K. Obler
Lise Menn
† Michael P. O'Connor
Description:

Following up on the monumental Agrammatic Aphasia: A Cross-Language Narrative Sourcebook, a three volume reference work also published by John Benjamins, Non-fluent Aphasia in a Multilingual World now provides an up-to-date, concise introduction to the language of patients with non-fluent aphasia. Recent research in languages other than English has challenged our old descriptions of aphasia syndromes: while their patterns can be recognized across languages, the structure of each language has a profound effect on the symptoms of aphasic speech. However, the basic linguistic concepts needed to understand these effects in languages other than English have rarely been part of the training of the clinician.Non-fluent Aphasia in a Multilingual World introduces these concepts plainly and concretely, in the context of dozens of examples from the narratives and conversations of patients speaking most of the major languages of Europe, North America and Asia. Linguistic and clinical terms are carefully defined and kept as theory neutral as possible.Non-Fluent Aphasia in a Multilingual World is especially useful for speech-language pathologists whose patients are immigrants and guestworkers, and for the clinician who must deal creatively with the challenges of providing aphasia diagnosis and therapy in a multicultural, multidialectical setting.
