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.

Title: Linguistics for Clinicians
Subtitle: A Practical Introduction
Written By: Maria Black
Shula Chiat
Description:

'Linguistics for Clinicians' provides an introduction to linguistic
analysis in the clinical context. The book draws on a range of linguistic
theories and descriptions, equipping readers with a conceptual toolkit that
will enable them to:
· Analyze data systematically, taking into account different types of
linguistic properties
· Pick out significant patterns that can give them clinically relevant cues
· Build explicit arguments to back up their observations and hypotheses.
· Select relevant linguistic items for assessment and therapy tasks.

Analytical tips are included to anticipate and deal with common problems of
clinical application. Extensive exercises further illustrate the use of
linguistic concepts in data analysis and task construction. Linguistics for
Clinicians is primarily a linguistics textbook for students and teachers in
clinical courses. It is also a useful resource for practicing clinicians,
psycholinguistics students and researchers in language impairments.
