Summary "This book introduces the reader to both neurolinguistics per se and the neuropsychological aspects of bilingualism. Neurolinguistics may roughly be defined as a subset of neuropsychology, namely the study of the representation and processing of language in the brain. To this effect, the first chapters of the book focus on the basic neuropsychology of language processing and acquisition." "The second half of the book addresses the issues of cerebral representation and processing of language in bi- or multilingual subjects." "The Neurolinguistics of Bilingualism is an excellent introduction to both the neuropsychology of language and the phenomena related to bilingualism. It will be of particular interest to students of language therapy, aphasiology, applied psycholinguistics, neurolinguistics and, in general, to students of medicine who wish to become more knowledgeable about the specific needs of patients in a multilingual society."--Jacket
