"This is a very important book for clinicians and scientists who have a comprehensive interest not only in understanding language, but in understanding the all-important act of languaging. It is a beautiful tribute to Jack Damico, a treasure that will keep his contributions on the radar screens of all who read it." --Audrey L. Holland, Ph.D., University of Arizona

"Bringing together several of the most brilliant researchers in the field, presenting a wide range of different qualitative methods, this theoretically well-grounded book makes a valuable contribution to our knowledge of human communicative sciences and disorders. It challenges the established view of communicative disorders as something belonging primarily to the individuals with the disorders. The book thus concerns any clinician working with children or adults with communication disorders."--Lena Hartelius, Ph.D., Universtiy of Gothenburg, Sweden
