“This collection performs a rite of passage: clinical linguistics has come of age.” - David Crystal, University of Wales, Bangor “The range of topics represented here, and the quality of the contributions, underline the advances Clinical Linguistics has made in three decades. This volume will for some time be the benchmark against which others in the field will be evaluated.” - Paul Fletcher, University College Cork “This comprehensive compendium covers the breadth and depth of clinical linguistics, presenting the latest research on pragmatics, discourse, sociolinguistics, syntax, semantics, phonetics and phonology. The impressive cohort of international contributors comprises the foremost authorities in their fields. This book is a classic reference work and will be frequently cited.” - Sharynne McLeod, Charles Sturt University, Australia “This Handbook offers state-of-the-art reviews and cutting-edge research reports. It is strongly recommended as a textbook for students at the master's level and higher, instructors and researchers in a variety of disciplines, including Speech-Language Pathology, Clinical Linguistics, Medicine, and Psychology.” - Ben Maassen, Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Centre
