About the Authors
  • Fluent aphasia is a language disorder that follows brain damage, severely impairing the patient's ability to communicate. Internationally renowned Susan Edwards provides a detailed description of fluent aphasia by drawing on a range of research data and comparing the condition with other types of aphasia as well as with normal language. Extensive examples of aphasic speech are given, and the progress of one fluent aphasic speaker is discussed in detail.

    • Combines clinical insights with theoretical debates
    • Looks at research findings from a variety of different methodologies
    • Provides many illustrations of aphasic speech
