In the pages that follow are my answers to the question of just what has happened recently in the study of schizophrenic language, especially since Kasanin's Language and Thought in Schizophrenia. The literature of the period from 1939, when the papers in Kasanin's collection were presented to the American Psychiatric Association, to the present includes a formidable amount of material. For this reason, I have concentrated on those articles which have dealt specifically with the problem of understanding schizophrenic language and those which have been most comprehensive in scope. Certainly I can make no claim to have exhausted the literature, but I feel I have gained an enlightening and meaningful overview of the more recent work in the field.
