"Clinical Sociolinguistics" examines how sociolinguistic research paradigms can be applied to assessment, diagnosis and treatment in the clinical situation. This title fills gap in the literature for speech-language pathologists by addressing how sociolinguistic research paradigms can be applied to assessment, diagnosis and treatment in the clinical situation. It collects newly commissioned articles written by top scholars in the field. It includes chapters that outline findings from sociolinguistic research over the last 40 years and point to the relevance of such findings for practicing speech-language pathologists. It discusses topics including bilingualism, code-switching, language planning, and African-American English.
