Explores the use of linguistics to intervene in cases of intransigent articulation disorder, cleft palate, global language delay, Down's syndrome, conversational disability, acquired dysarthria, acquired speech disorder, aphasia, and closed head injury. The editors' intention is to demonstrate to speech pathology students, speech and language therapists, educational psychologists, researchers, and linguists who may feel too busy to take the time needed for clinical linguistic analysis that the technique is well worth the effort.

This work aims to bring together a wide-ranging set of clinical linguistic case studies covering all levels of linguistic analysis and demonstrating the application of more than one level of linguistic analysis to individual cases. It focuses on "patient-driven" cases.
The authors aim to demonstrate the collaborative nature of applied linguistics by illustrating the kind of service that speech and language therapists may reasonably ask of linguists, without feeling that they need have expertize in this area themselves.
The case studies include a representative range of communication disorders and involve a wide range of areas of linguistics and phonetics. Most of the studies incoporate complementary analysis at several linguistic levels, and involve a wide variety of analytical techniques including standard assessments and profiling procedures, instrumental and computational procedures, and improvised materials tailored to the specific nature of individual cases.
