Focusing on body conditions associated with breast cancer, Alzheimers disease, (type-1) diabetes, epilepsy, partial hearing and autism, this book draws on a range of critical theories to contest collectively assembled notions of abnormality, disability and impairments and ways in which they emerge through language. It also addresses the need for applied sociolinguists to take account of how our researching practices - the texts we produce, the orientations we assume, the theoretical grounds from which we proceed - create meanings about bodies and normalcy, and the importance of remaining ever vigilant and civically responsible in what we do or claim to do.
