Paradis, Michel. 1998. Pragmatics in Neurogenic Communication Disorders. (International Association of Logopedics and Phoniatrics). Amsterdam: Elsevier Science. x + 257 pp.
Publication type
Book – monograph
Publication language


The papers in this volume, an identical reprint of a special issue of the "Journal of Neurolinguistics" (1998, Vol. 11, Nrs. 1-2), focus on the role of pragmatics in different types of aphasia, communicative deficit due to focal brain damage and the gradual communicative breakdown in Alzheimer's or Parkinson's disease. The notion of pragmatics refers here to both the organization of discourse on the one hand, and, on the other, all aspects of meaning beyond what is conveyed structurally, including indirect and paralinguistic meanings, inferences from contextual information, and general knowledge.
