Neurolinguistik: Probleme, Paradigmen, Perspektiven by Helen Leuninger

By Helen Leuninger

Der zweite Teil zeigt, daß einige dieser Probleme präzisiert und z.T. gelöst werden konnten aufgrund der paradigmatischen Ansätze, die heute in der Neurolinguistik erkenntnisleitend sind. Schließlich wird im dritten Teil unter Zugrundelegung heute gültiger sprachtheoretischer Auffassungen über das Sprachsystem und sprachliche Verarbeitungsprozesse und Entwicklungen eine perspektivische Synthese vorgestellt. Das Buch enthält eine ausführliche Literaturliste mit neuesten Publikationen, einen Sachindex und ein sign in, in dem die wichtigsten Begriffe erklärt werden."(...) Das Buch eignet sich vorzüglich als Lektüre für Linguisten, die sich im Rahmen linguistischer Theoriebildung mit Aphasie beschäftigen möchten. Es würde sich andererseits auch intestine für Sprachtherapeuten eignen, die sich über neuere Entwicklungen der Linguistik informieren möchten, die für das Studium der Sprachstörungen proper sind. Es ist zu hoffen, daß das Buch nicht zuletzt auch an den verschiedenen Ausbildungsstätten für Sprachtherapeuten die Beachtung findet, die es verdient."Neurolinguistik 2/89
