Abstract:

In recent decades, a growing number of children have been diagnosed with
autism spectrum disorder (ASD), a condition characterized by, among other
features, social interaction deficits and language impairment. Yet the precise
nature of the disorder’s impact on language development is not well
understood, in part because of the language variability among children across
the autism spectrum. The contributors to this volume — experts in fields
ranging from communication disorders to developmental and clinical psychology
to linguistics — use innovative techniques to address two broad questions: Is
the variability of language development and use in children with ASD a
function of the language, such that some linguistic domains are more
vulnerable to ASD than others? Or is the variability a function of the
individual, such that some characteristics predispose those with ASD to have
varying levels of difficulty with language development and use? Contributors
investigate these questions across linguistic levels, from lexical semantics
and single-clause syntax, to computationally complex phonology and the
syntax-pragmatics interface. Authors address both spoken and written domains
within the wider context of language acquisition. This timely and broadly
accessible volume will be of interest to a broad range of specialists,
including linguists, psychologists, sociologists, behavioral neurologists, and
cognitive neuroscientists.
