Anomia is the inability to access spoken names for objects, most often associated with the elderly or those with brain damage to the left hemisphere. Anomia offers the state-of-the-art review of disorders of naming, written by acknowledged experts from around the world, approached from both clinical and theoretical viewpoints. Goodglass, known around the world for his research in aphasia and speech pathology, edits this first book devoted exclusively to naming and its disorders. Wingfield is known for his classic studies of lexical processing in aphasic and normal speakers. The book includes comprehensive literature reviews, a summary of relevant research data, as well as astudy of recent advances in cognitive analysis and anatomic findings. Anomia is an immensely useful work for all those involved in the study of language, particularly those in cognitive neuroscience, neurology, speech pathology, and linguistics.

"This volume... provides a welcome review incorporating current clinical findings and theoretical viewpoints. The editors begin with a highly readable overview of word-finding deficits in aphasia. Overall... found this volume to be well written and highly informative. A strength is its integration of clinical and theoretical, anatomic, and cognitive perspectives. This book should be useful to readers across many disciplines who have an interest in language and brain-behavior relationships." --JOURNAL OF THE INTERNATIONAL NEUROPSYCHOLOGICAL SOCIETY
