Overview

The qualitative analysis of naturally occurring discourse in neurogenic communication disorders, specifically in dementia studies, has experienced recent burgeoning interest from wide-ranging disciplines. This multidisciplinarity has been exciting, but has added contextual confusion. This book advances the study of discourse in dementia by systematically exploring and applying different approaches to the same free conversational data sets, collected and transcribed by the authors. The applied methodologies and theories comprise a useful sourcebook for students, researchers, and practitioners alike.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This book describes in critical detail a number of forms of discourse analysis that are relevant to the language of individuals with dementia and their interlocutors. However, it has much broader implications for the analysis of individuals with language disorders in general. It is highly recommended for students who wish to learn the wealth of
information that can be gleaned from the study of discourse."
