A theoretical account of lexical and semantic naming deficits in bilingual aphasia.

CONCLUSIONS: Our findings suggest it is possible to identify relationships between language patterns and deficits in patients with bilingual aphasia and that these trends will be instrumental in clinical assessments of this understudied population. PMID: 23816660 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract Aphasic discourse has been investigated through two major approaches: a micro-linguistic approach and a macro one, but the separate analysis of the micro and macro aspects of aphasic discourse has led to a noticeable gap between them. Cohesion analysis is one of the possible ways that can directly connect these two aspects. However, few studies have investigated cohesion in aphasic discourse in an integrated manner. The present study employs a mixed-methods approach to examine whether and how patients with fluent and non-fluent stroke-induced aphasia differ from normal individuals in the cohesion of their...

Conclusions The WIM and the MATTR are promising measures that quantify lexical diversity in different and complementary ways. The WIM may be more useful for quantifying the effect of treatment or disease progression, whereas the MATTR may be more useful for discriminating discourse produced by people with very mild aphasia from discourse produced by neurotypical controls. Further validation is required. PMID: 32191154 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Aphasia is one of the most severe symptoms in stroke patients, affecting one-third of acute stroke patients. We aimed to investigate the prevalence and outcomes of aphasia in patients with acute ischemic stroke (AIS).
