It was written for students of linguistics and communication disorders, but students of psychology, neuroscience and other disciplines will elisabetu find it valuable. The introductory section presents the theories, models and frameworks underlying modern neurolinguistics. Then the neurolinguistic aspects of different components of language — phonology, morphology, lexical semantics, and semantics-pragmatics in communication — t discussed.

Introduction to Neurolinguistics

The third section examines reading and writing, bilingualism, the evolution of language, and multimodality.

The book also contains three resource chapters, one on techniques for investigating the brain, another on modeling brain functions, and a third that introduces the basic concepts of neuroanatomy and neurophysiology.


This text provides an up-to-date linguistic perspective, leisabeth a special focus on semantics and pragmatics, evolutionary perspectives, neural network modeling and multimodality, areas that have been less central in earlier introductory works. The semantics and pragmatics of communicative contributions in context from a neurolinguistic perspective.

On the evolution and development of the brain, communication, and language. Her many years of experience as a clinician, clinical researcher, and teacher, and her leadership in international cross-linguistic aphasia studies have given her an elosabeth perspective on this field. She presents both sides of current controversies ahlseen and fairly. These sections are two of many which are richly informed by her own research on communication elisbeth in aphasia.

She gives serious consideration to current therapeutic approaches, including the design of augmentative and alternative communication devices and communicatively-oriented therapy, where again the sensitivity of the discussion bears witness to her own extensive clinical experience. The many points of contact between neurolinguistics and other disciplines will be of value to the professional.

This text book is very pedagogical. It is well organized into chapters, and each chapter is itself well organized, with clearly defined concepts, a survey of the most relevant literature, an integration of each subtopic into the whole, followed by references, suggested reading, and assignments. Michel Paradis, McGill University. The core of this text is Part II which introduces the brain components and aphasic language impairments of phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics and, importantly, pragmatics.


Of particular value are the frequent links to therapy, on the practical side, and different models of brain-language relationships, on the theoretical side.

The discussion of alternative, competing theories is particularly helpful, as are the useful exercises offered to the beginning student.
