Linguistics and Aphasia is a major study of recent developments in applying psycholinguistics and pragmatics to the study of acquired language disorders (aphasia) and their remediation. Psycholinguistic analyses of aphasia interpret disorders in terms of damaged modules and processes within what was once a normal language system. These analyses have progressed to the point that they now routinely provide a model-based rationale for planning patient therapy. Through a series of case studies, the authors show how the psycholinguistic analysis of aphasia can be assessed for its effectiveness in clinical practice.Pragmatic approaches to the study of aphasia are of more recent origin. Ruth Lesser and Lesley Milroy evaluate their considerable significance to the study of aphasia and their relevance to practical issues of diagnosis and treatment. Controversial analysis, in particular, offers a fruitful and productive framework within which to assess the functional adequacy of the language used by aphasic speakers in everyday contexts. This book will be widely welcomed by students of applied linguistics and of speech and language pathology and therapy. The discussion of psycholinguistic and pragmatic analyses of disordered language make the book important reading not only for practising speech and language therapists. but for other professionals with a particular interest in their clients' or patients' language. These include clinical psychologists and medical specialists such as neurologists and psychiatrists. Size: Octavo (standard book size). 377 pages. no Dust Jacket as published..
