Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jeannene M. Ward-Lonergan, PhD, CCC-SLP(Bowling Green State University)
Description: This is an extremely organized and readable text in clinical phonology that contains 16 chapters organized into four major sections: From Articulation to Phonology, Development of a Discipline; Phonological Analysis; Phonological Intervention; and Related Issues. With the exception of one chapter, all are written by a single author. Several provide a systematic, comprehensive approach that guides the reader in performing generative phonological analyses. Subsequently, detailed approaches to providing phonological intervention are discussed.
Purpose: The primary purpose is to eliminate some of mystery and complexity from the discussion of clinical phonology. The author's intent is to provide practical, clinically relevant guidance to assist students and clinicians in their efforts to apply principles of phonology to clinical practice.
Audience: The book is written for both students and professionals in speech/language pathology who provide services to children or adults with articulation/phonological disorders. In addition, researchers in the areas of clinical phonology and language disorders would also find this book to be a beneficial resource. The concepts and procedures presented are based on current research and the author's extensive clinical experience.
Features: One of the outstanding features of this book is that it contains numerous "clinical mastery exercises" that allow the reader to actively internalize and apply new material as it is being learned. Many fine quality illustrations are included, along with a sufficient quantity of current and classic references. A well-organized subject index and table of contents are also provided to facilitate information access.
Assessment: This book is highly recommended for both students and professionals practicing in the area of clinical phonology. The author has made a truly unique contribution to the discipline of phonology by successfully meeting the difficult, yet essential, challenge of bridging the gap between theory and clinical practice.

Booknews
A readable and often witty account of clinical phonology for students and clinicians in the speech-language field who have wanted to incorporate it into their practice but have been daunted by the complexity of the terminology and the obscurity of many standard texts. The textual material is supported by exercises to teach the performance aspects of phonological analysis and intervention. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
