Now in paperback, “The Handbook of Clinical Linguistics” brings together an
international team of contributors to produce an original and in-depth survey of
this multi-faceted field. It fills a gap in the existing literature as the first non-
encyclopedic volume to provide comprehensive, up to date coverage of this
ever-expanding area of linguistics.
Relevant chapters include a range of pathologies, with each section exploring
multilingual and cross-linguistics aspects of the field, as well as analytical
methods and assessment. In those chapters examining a specific area of
linguistics, a section has been included which outlines how mainstream theories
and descriptions of language have been influenced, if at all, by clinical research.
The result is an essential resource for students and practitioners of speech-
language pathology, linguistics, psychology, and education.
