Title: Multilingual Aspects of Fluency Disorders
Edited By: Peter Howell
John Van Borsel
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781847693587
Series Title: Communication Disorders Across Languages
Description:

This book contains contributions by scholars working on diverse aspects of
speech who bring their findings to bear on the practical issue of how to
treat stuttering in different language groups and in multilingual speakers.
The book considers classic issues in speech production research, as well as
whether regions of the brain that are affected in people who stutter relate
to areas used intensively in fluent bilingual speech. It then reviews how
formal language properties and differential use of parts of language affect
stuttering in English, and then compares these findings to work on
stuttering in a variety of languages. Finally, the book addresses
methodological issues to do with studies on bilingualism and stuttering;
and discusses which approach is appropriate in the treatment of bilingual
and multilingual people who stutter.
