A Computer-Aided Investigation of Linguistic Performance: Normal and Pathological Language.
Wachal, Robert S.; Spreen, Otfried
A system of 20 Fortran and PL/1 programs, developed for an analysis of aphasic and normal speech transcripts, is described in detail. The programs aid in lexical, grammatical, paralinguistic and statistical analyses, as well as in data preparation and correction. They can also be used in schizophrenic and other kinds of pathological language and are adaptable to the analysis of written-language samples and the investigation of authorship and style.
