Abstract:

'...this collection is a praiseworthy effort at meeting the challenges of
research into dementia from a multi-disciplinary perspective...this is a
book I would highly recommend for use by both students and researchers. It
provides a useful resource that exemplifies how linguistic approaches can
be systematically applied to both written texts and conversational data.
Even more importantly, it is underpinned by a concern for integrity of the
individual and points to strategies that can be used to improve the
communication process in dementia.' - Jackie Guendouzi, Journal of
Sociolinguistics

This collection augments clinical inventories of Alzheimer's discourse with
an emphasis on how caregivers and researchers can focus on communication
enhancement and person-centered care. Specialists from linguistics, speech
and communications disorders, gerontology, nursing, and artificial
intelligence analyze retained competencies for social and linguistic
interaction by speakers with Alzheimer's Disease, keyed to a corpus of
naturally-occurring conversation, collected over several years. The
contributors examine discourse boundaries and social relationships,
gender-cued interaction and life-course analysis, online text by and about
Alzheimer's speech, ways Alzheimer's speakers co-construct stories, in more
than one language, with caregivers and conversation partners. They explore
ways we might help Alzheimer's speakers - and ourselves -- communicate
better by knowing more about some of the ways they can continue to display
their communicative skills, and by designing innovative enhancements and
interventions.
