This book introduces the reader to both neurolinguistics per se and the neuropsychological aspects of bilingualism. Neurolinguistics may roughly be defined as a subset of neuropsychology, namely the study of the representation and processing of language in the brain. To this effect, the first chapters of the book focus on the basic neuropsychology of language processing and acquisition. The second half of the book addresses the issues of cerebral representation and processing of language in bi-or multilingual subjects. All aspects are systematically dealt with, namely the definition of bilingualism; an analysis of all the issues related to bilingual aphasia, i.e. patterns of recovery of the patients' carious languages in diverse population; an investigation of the methodologies used in the study of the neuropsychological aspects of the various linguistic functions, such as comprehension, production and translation; and lastly, the issues of cerebral lateralization and neuroanatomical localization of the numerous cortical and subcortical structures subserving the various language system components in multilingual subjects. It is an excellent introduction to both the neuropsychology of language and the phenomena related to bilingualism. This book will be of particular interest to students of language therapy, aphasiology, applied psycholinguistics, neurolinguistics and, in general, to students of medicine who wish to become more knowledgeable about the specific needs of patients in a multilingual society.

Review:

'I could find no serious omissions in a book that currently has no competitors.' - Lance Workman, University of Glamorgan, The Times Higher Education Supplement

'... For anyone who wishes to learn what is known about the neurolinguistics of bilingualism and polyglossia, Franco Fabbro's new book is the ideal companion.' - John C. Marshall, University Department of Clinical Neurology, Oxford, Neuropsychologia

'The past few decades have seen our exposure to multiple languages continuously increasing. In this sense, Franco Fabbro's Neurolinguistics of Bilingualism, dealing with the representation and processing of multiple languages in the brain, meets an urgent need. this interesting and very clearly written book provides a good introduction to the way in which multiple languages are represented in the brain based on what we know from brain-lesioned patients. After reading it, an enthusiastic neurolinguist or neuroscientist willl look forward to the next volume, elucidating bilingualism from studies on the healthy human brain.' - Risto Naataned and Teija Kujala, University of Helsinki, Finland, Nature 1999

'This book is a good introduction to the study of neuropsychology and neurolinguistics of bilingualism, and will be of particular interest to researchers and students in the fields of linguistics, neurolinguistics, aphasiology, language therapy, speech pathology, and, in general, to all those who want to become more knowledgeable about the specific needs of bilingual patients in our increasingly multilingual world.' - Dr Aneto Pavelenko, Temple University, Philadelphia

'This book is a delight to read and is an accurate rendering of the field of bilingual neurolinguistics which should be accessible to experts and novice readers alike.' - Arturo E. Hernandez, University of California, APA Review of Books

'The present book is valuable for providing the unskilled reader with all the main topics of neurolinguistics and of the neurolinguistics of polyglossy, in particular. Apart from being of some interest for everybody, this book can be very useful for people who work in the field of language teaching. Moreover, given the rigorous analysis of data presented in the literature, the book can be appreciated also by neuropsychologists who are not directly involved in the neurolinguistics of polyglossy.' - Sergio Zanini, International School for Advanced Studies, Trieste, Italy

'This book is a crucial addition to the library of anyone who has an interest in the neuroscience of bilingualism. In fact, it would even be a valuable addition to the library of anyone who is bilingual. It provides all of the background necessary to understand the basic issues in the neurolinguistics of bilingualism.' - Lidia Artiola i Fortuny, Journal of the International Neuropsychological Society
