Reviews

'...this collection is a praiseworthy effort at meeting the challenges of research into dementia from a multi-disciplinary perspective...this is a book I would highly recommend for use by both students and researchers. It provides a useful resource that exemplifies how linguistic approaches can be systematically applied to both written texts and conversational data. Even more importantly, it is underpinned by a concern for integrity of the individual and points to strategies that can be used to improve the communication process in dementia.' - Jackie Guendouzi, Journal of Sociolinguistics
