Agrammatic aphasia (agrammatism), resulting from brain damage to regions of the brain involved in language processing, affects grammatical aspects of language. Therefore, research examining language breakdown (and recovery) patterns in agrammatism is of great interest and importance to linguists, neurolinguists, neuropsychologists, neurologists, psycholinguists and speech and language pathologists from all over the world. Research in agrammatism, studied across languages and from different perspectives, provides information about the grammatical structures that are affected by brain damage, their nature, and how language (and the brain) recovers from brain damage.

The chapters in this book focus on the symptoms that arise in agrammatic aphasia at the lexical, morphological and sentence level and address these impairments from neurolinguistic, neuropsychological and neurological perspectives. Special attention is given to methods for assessment and treatment of agrammatism and to the neurobiological changes that can result from the treatments.

Perspectives on Agrammatism provides an up-to-date overview of research that has been done over the past two decades. With contributions from the most influential aphasiologists from Europe and the United States, it provides an indispensable reference for students and academics in the field of language disorders.

About the Author:

Roelien Bastiaanse is a Professor in Neurolinguistics at the University Groningen. Her research focuses on the cross-linguistic aspects of agrammatic aphasia and the analysis of spontaneous speech, both with special emphasis on the production of verbs. The results have been used to develop tests and treatment programmes for aphasia in several languages.

Cynthia K. Thompson is Ralph and Jean Sundin Professor of Communication Sciences and Disorders at Northwestern University. The primary goals of her research are to examine language breakdown and recovery patterns in aphasia and to explore the neurocognitive mechanisms of normal, disordered and recovered language processing.

Review:

"This volume is an excellent resource which provides an extensive coherent summary of the most essential issues and current developments in the field of aphasiology. ... Valuable for students, clinicians, and researchers." - Michaela Nerantzini, University of Athens, Greece, in International Journal of Language and Communication Disorders

"This is an excellent, well conceived book about agrammatism with contributions from internationally recognised researchers. I will certainly be recommending this to scholars and researchers  in the field and to students studying aphasia at an advanced level."  - Susan Edwards, Professor Emerita, School of Psychology and Clinical Language Sciences, University of Reading, UK

"The strength of Perspectives in Agrammatism is in its multidisciplinary approach, including a section on clinical perspectives. It is a creative and successful work which merges research and practical perspectives." - Claire Penn, Professor and Chair, Department of Speech Pathology and Audiology, University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa
