This collection augments clinical inventories of Alzheimer's discourse with an emphasis on how caregivers and researchers can focus on communication enhancement and person-centered care. Specialists from linguistics, speech and communications disorders, gerontology, nursing, and artificial intelligence analyze retained competencies for social and linguistic interaction by speakers with Alzheimer's Disease, keyed to a corpus of naturally-occurring conversation, collected over several years. The contributors examine discourse boundaries and social relationships, gender-cued interaction and life-course analysis, online text by and about Alzheimer's speech, ways Alzheimer's speakers co-construct stories, in more than one language, with caregivers and conversation partners. They explore ways we might help Alzheimer's speakers - and ourselves - communicate better by knowing more about some of the ways they can continue to display their communicative skills, and by designing innovative enhancements and interventions.
