Barbara Von Eckardt Klein; The Linguistic and Psycholinguistic Background, Noam Chomsky and Edward Walker; Inferring Functional Localization from Neurological Evidence, Barbara Von Eckardt Klein; The Linguistic Interpretation of Aphasic Syndromes, Mary-Louise Kean; Accessing the Mental Lexicon, Kenneth I. Forster; A Case Study: Face Recognition, Susan Carey; Current Studies of Animal Communications Paradigms for the Biology of Language, Edward Walker; Some Neurological Techniques for Accessing Localization of Function, David Rosenfield.

Review:

"This book provides a well-argued response to well-entrenched prejudice: linguists, concerned with abstract notions of competence, have tended to ignore neurological data; and clinicians have shunned transformational and structural grammars as remote from the practical business of localization, taxonomy, and prognosis.... These 'explorations' should be welcomed as a rare and worthwhile contribution."
F. Newcombe, Journal of the Neurological Sciences

"This book would be a valuable addition to the libraries of instructors of language behavior and disorders."
G. Albyn Davis, ASHA Journal
