In grade school, no one would have ever guessed I'd grow up to become a linguist-- I was the kid who got Cs in French and couldn't produce a trill to save my life! I went to university majoring in civil engineering-- relieved that there was no language requirement for that major.

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 is what Prof. Wayles Browne of Cornell's Department of Linguistics said about the book:
"The book is a product of many years of research and writing. Professor Ridjanovć brought to bear his life-long involvement in language teaching and linguistics on a book that he modesty calls a textbook, although the 345-page grammatical part is a full-fledged grammar which includes many rules that were not observed in two centuries of grammatical investigation of the lanaguage now called by four different names (Bosnian, Croatian, Montenegrin, Serbian)."
The book's main parts are: 40 lessons each with about ten exercises (255 pages), Bosnian grammar (345 pages), Bosnian-English glossary (100 pages), and a brief English-Bosnian glossary. It comes with a CD on which are recorded most of the lessons, the last item being a well-known Bosnian folk song.
