The Cambridge Handbook of Communication Disorders examines the full range of developmental and acquired communication disorders and provides the most up-to-date and comprehensive guide to the epidemiology, aetiology and clinical features of these disorders.
Sign languages are of great interest to linguists because, while they are
produced by the same brain, their physical transmission differs greatly
from that of spoken languages. Wendy Sandler and Diane Lillo-Martin compare
spoken languages with those that are signed, in order to seek universal
properties of human languages. No prior background in sign language
linguistics is assumed, and numerous pictures are provided to make
descriptions accessible to readers.
