Title: Fluent Aphasia
Written By: Susan Edwards
URL: http://us.cambridge.org/titles/catalogue.asp?isbn=9780521791076
Series Title: Cambridge Studies in Linguistics, 107
Description:

Fluent aphasia is a language disorder that follows brain damage, causing
difficulty in finding the correct words and structuring sentences. Speakers
also experience problems in understanding language, severely impairing
their ability to communicate. In this informative and up-to-date study,
Susan Edwards provides a detailed description of fluent aphasia, by drawing
widely on research data, and by comparing fluent aphasia with other types
of aphasia as well as with normal language. She discusses evidence that the
condition affects access to underlying grammatical rules as well as to the
lexicon, and explores the relationship between language and the brain, the
controversy over aphasia syndromes, the assessment of aphasia via
standardised tests, and the analysis of continuous speech data. Extensive
examples of aphasic speech are given, and the progress of one fluent
aphasic speaker is discussed in detail. Written by an
internationally-renowned expert, this book will be invaluable to linguists
and practitioners alike.
