The topics covered range from children's development and the acquisition of sounds through to the communicative environments of adults and the use of subtle conversational devices.

It brings together recent advances in phonology and the development of communication, and makes linguistic issues clear to the non-specialist. It will be invaluable to researchers in psychology and speech therapy, and to all those who work with learning disabled individuals.
