As well as considering theories emerging in the wake of the recent paradigm shift in agrammatism research, the book also includes chapters on: The impairment of grammatical morphemes, The Trace Deletion and the Tree Pruning Hypotheses, Verbs in sentences and as single words in agrammatic speech, The writing is accessible to facilitate student reading, and the book includes a glossary of unfamiliar terms.
