Editorial Reviews

Barbaranne J. Benjamin
This is a compendium of articles on agrammatism originally published in Brain and Language from 1993 through 1995. The contributors represent diverse approaches and research into various models and theories. The purpose is to bring together articles on agrammatism that have previously been published to provide an up-to-date review of various. perspectives on the topic. The introductory materials by the editor provide a framework for understanding the context of the information. The limitation that only articles published in Brain and Language are included in the book. The primary audience for this book are those professionals interested in linguistics, psycholinguistics, cognitive science, and related areas. Because of the emphasis on theory, the book is particularly valuable for academicians and researchers. The editor and the contributors have excellent credentials; their expertise is reflected in the quality of the information contained in the volume. The book consists of 18 chapters/articles. References are current and relevant; illustrations are infrequent but add to the clarity of the material. Because the book is a compendium of articles, the density of information is high. This compendium of articles provides a single volume of research into the understanding of agrammatism. Although no particular line of inquiry into hypotheses to explain aspects of agrammatism unites this collection, the diversity of approaches is apparent. The articles range in scope from description of specific linguistic ability of agrammatic patients to investigations of agrammatic behavior, which provides data in support of a particular hypothesis or theory of agrammatic linguisticbehavior. The quality and quantity of research into this topic is impressive.
