This volume provides a broad overview of current work in aphasia in individualswho speak more than one language. With contributions from many of the leadingresearchers in the field, the material included, both experimental work andtheoretical overviews, should prove useful to both researchers and clinicians.The book should also appeal to a broader audience, including all who have aninterest in the study of language disorders in an increasinglymulticultural/multilingual world (e.g. students of speech-language pathology andlinguistics). The areas of multilingual aphasia addressed in this collectioninclude assessment and treatment, language phenomena (e.g. code-switching),particular language pairs (including a bidialectal study), and the role of culturalcontext.
