    “Individuals acquire language, and lose it, in a variety of contexts. Gender, geography, socioeconomic status and bilingualism are all relevant to clinical reasoning about speech and language disorders. This timely volume is grounded in state-of-the art sociolinguistic research, but also demonstrates the application of sociolinguistic thinking to the clinical situation. It will be an invaluable text for those professionals faced with linguistically and culturally diverse client groups, and for students and researchers in communication disorders.” Paul Fletcher, University College Cork
