23 - Clinical Linguistics

from Part III - SFL in Application

Summary

This chapter first outlines the goals and scope of clinical linguistics and then reviews the work that has been undertaken using Systemic Functional Linguistic (SFL) models. Our approach to SFL contributions is organized by diagnostic groups and, within those groups, by metafunctions, linguistic levels (‘strata’ in SFL terms), and domains as relevant. One of the goals of the chapter is to clarify the function(s), domain(s), strata, and disorders which have (or have not) been addressed by SFL work in clinical linguistics. This forms the ground for assessing existing and potential contributions of SFL to clinical linguistics and the 'state of the art'.
