Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Title: The Sciences of Aphasia
Subtitle: From Therapy to Theory
Edited By: I. Papathanasiou
Ria DeBlesser
URL: http://www.socscinet.com/isbn/0080440738/index.html
Description:

It is now widely expected that scientific evidence and theory should be used to describe aphasia and aphasia therapy.

The Sciences of Aphasia: From Therapy to Theory provides state-of-the-art review chapters on controversial research and clinical issues in aphasia and aphasia therapy. Contributions from distinguished scholars from all over the world (Europe, America, Australia) cover the range of disciplines involved in aphasia, including neurology of aphasia, cognitive and linguistic approaches to aphasic therapy, psychosocial approaches, aphasia research methodology, and efficacy of aphasia therapy. This book brings together contributions of all these disciplines and makes a link between theory and therapy from a scientific perspective.

Each chapter offers a current review with extensive references, thus providing an invaluable resource for clinicians, students and researchers involved in aphasia and aphasic therapy including doctors, psychologists, linguists and speech and language therapists.

The papers in this book were presented at the first European Research
Conference on Aphasia. "In order to know what the future may hold for best practice, I recommend that you consult this book."
Dr John C. Marshall
