Title: Alzheimer Talk, Text, Context
Subtitle: Enhancing Communication
Edited By: Boyd H. Davis

The contributors to this volume reference a shared, longitudinal corpus of
spontaneous conversation elicited in natural settings from speakers with
moderate to late moderate Alzheimer's Disease, utilizing other collections
as appropriate, to analyze conversation, discourse and written text by and
about Alzheimer's speech. Cross-disciplinary contributions from the USA,
Canada, New Zealand and Germany, representing linguistics, gerontology,
geriatric nursing, computer science, and communications disorders report on
empirically-based investigations of social and pragmatic language
competencies and strategies retained by AD patients which could ground
communication enhancements or interventions.
