Recent research in languages other than English has challenged our old descriptions of aphasia syndromes: while their patterns can be recognized across languages, the structure of each language has a profound effect on the symptoms of aphasic speech.

However, the basic linguistic concepts needed to understand these effects in languages other than English have rarely been part of the training of the clinician.Non-fluent Aphasia in a Multilingual World introduces these concepts plainly and concretely, in the context of dozens of examples from the narratives and conversations of patients speaking most of the major languages of Europe, North America and Asia.

Linguistic and clinical terms are carefully defined and kept as theory neutral as possible.Non-Fluent Aphasia in a Multilingual World is especially useful for speech-language pathologists whose patients are immigrants and guestworkers, and for the clinician who must deal creatively with the challenges of providing aphasia diagnosis and therapy in a multicultural, multidialectical setting.
