In 1949, Luchsinger and Arnold published the first German edition of Lehrbuch der Stimm-und Sprachheilkunde and ten years later a larger more complete volume was printed. The present book is an extension and further development of this second edition consisting, in part, of the English translation, and, in part, many additions and rearrangements. Much credit is given to Dr. Evelyn Robe Finkbeiner who, together with Dr. Arnold, completed the work of translation. Extensive compressing, expanding, and remodeling justify the new title.

The book is divided into two sections. In the first, Dr. Luchsinger describes the voice and its disturbances, and in the second, Dr. Arnold discusses speech and language and their disorders. Each section is organized into two parts, the first providing general and background information and the second, specific disorders. Striving for encyclopedic completeness, the authors have covered practically all known types of vocal and verbal disorders.
