The Journal of Multilingual Communication Disorders aims to provide a forum for debate in the increasingly important area of multilingualism and multiculturalism and their impact on speech-language pathology. The journal will publish work on multilingual and multicultural clients with the full range of communication disorders, e.g. on differential language retention in aphasia, provision of assessment materials for bilinguals, establishment of language norms in multicultural populations and clinical management of multilingual clientele. The journal will also promote research on speech- language disorders and normal acquisition in lesser-researched languages. There will be special emphasis on languages that have not been the focus of study in communication disorders. The journal is edited by two specialists in clinical linguistics and multilingualism.
