Analysis of Neurogenic Disordered Discourse Production provides a comprehensive review and discussion of aphasia and its related disorders, their corresponding clinical discourse symptoms that speech-language pathologists and related healthcare professionals should address, and the different methods of discourse elicitation that are research- and clinically-oriented. Contemporary issues related to disordered/clinical discourse production are covered, and discussions of various treatment options in relation to discourse symptoms are included. Finally, the manifestation of discourse symptoms as a function of speakers' bilingual/multilingual status and specific considerations related to clinical assessment and intervention are explored.

Readers who want to learn the background and techniques of discourse analysis, refresh their knowledge of discourse production, update their knowledge of assessment and treatment of discourse production, and learn about contemporary issues of discourse annotation and analysis using existing computer software will find this book a valuable tool. With its comprehensive coverage, it offers a thorough understanding of the nature, assessment, and remediation of discourse deficits in aphasia and related disorders. Readers will also benefit from examples throughout the book that connect theory to real-life contexts of discourse production.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'This volume fills a void in the literature at a time when there is growing interest in assuring that treatment of acquired language disorders makes meaningful change at the discourse level. In addition to providing the most thorough resource on the collection and analysis of discourse in neurogenic populations, Dr. Kong provides readers with an excellent overview of treatment approaches that are thought to impact discourse. This text is a gold mine for the clinician or researcher interested in focusing on discourse-level language; for students, it's a wonderful supplement to any existing aphasia textbook.' - Gail Ramsberger, Sc.D., CCC-SLP, Board Certified-ANCDS, Chair and Associate Professor, Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences, University of Colorado

'Dr. Kong's volume provides a thorough, accessible introduction to impairments of discourse-central to human communication-in patients with aphasia and dementia. It is rich in detail, case examples, and references to useful tools for elicitation, assessment, treatment, and research.' - Loraine K. Obler, Ph.D., Distinguished Professor, Speech-Language-Hearing Sciences, CUNY Graduate Center

'Esteemed scholar Kong has created a detailed, modern text on the topic of aphasia. ... While the text is an intensive treatment of the topic, the reader will find that the language is accessible. ... Particularly impressive are the chapters on multimodal and multilevel analyses and on multilingual and multicultural populations. This book is highly recommended as a stand-alone text or a textbook supplement for graduate students, researchers, and clinical practitioners in speech-language pathology and cognitive or clinical psychology who are interested in the research or treatment of neurogenic discourse production disorders.' -Choice Magazine, K. C. Michael, University of Minnesota - Morris
