Abstract:

New Edition

Pragmatics - the way we communicate using more than just language - is
particularly problematic for people with speech disorders. Through an
extensive analysis of how pragmatics can go wrong, this 2007 book not only
provides a clinically useful account of pragmatic impairment, but it also
throws light on how pragmatics functions in healthy individuals. Michael
Perkins brings mainstream and clinical pragmatics together by showing that
not only can our understanding of pragmatics be aided by the study of
pragmatic impairment, but that clinical and theoretical pragmatics are
better served by treating pragmatic ability and disability within a single
framework. It is a comprehensive book aimed primarily at linguists and
psycholinguists rather than clinicians, and includes illustrative material
on conditions such as autism and aphasia and a wide range of other
communication disorders in both children and adults.

- An original account of verbal and non-verbal communication, focusing on
people with speech disorders
- Provides an overview of the research that has been carried out on a range
of speech disorders in both children and adults
- Essential for linguists, psychologists, cognitive neuroscientists and
speech/language pathologists who wish to understand pragmatics from
different perspectives
