How do people with brain damage communicate? How does the partial or
total loss of the ability to speak and use language fluently manifest
itself in actual conversation? How are people with brain damage able
to expand their cognitive ability through interaction with others -
and how do these discursive activities in turn influence cognition?

This groundbreaking collection of new articles examines the ways in
which aphasia and other neurological deficits lead to language
impairments that shape the production, reception and processing of
language. Edited by noted linguistic anthropologist Charles Goodwin
and with contributions from a wide range of international scholars,
the articles provide a pragmatic and interactive perspective on the
types of challenges that face aphasic speakers in any given act of

Conversation and Brain Damage will be invaluable to linguists,
discourse analysts, linguistic and medical anthropologists, speech
therapists, neurologists, psychiatrists, psychologists, workers in
mental health care and in public health, sociologists, and readers
interested in the long-term implications of brain damage.
