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.
This volume is about "dislocation" -- the removal of phrases from their
canonical positions in a sentence to its left or right edge. Dislocation
encompasses a wide range of linguistic phenomena, related to nominal and
adverbial expressions and to the information structuring notions of topic
and focus; and takes intriguingly different forms across languages. This
book reveals some of the empirical richness of dislocation and some key
puzzles related to its syntactic, semantic, and discourse analysis.
