Acquisition of a Non-Vocal 'Language' by Aphasic Children
Hughes, Jennifer
Cognition, 3, 1, 41-55, 74/75
Aphasic children were taught to communicate via a system of visual symbols devised by Premack (1969) for use with chimpanzees. Subjects readily learned to express several language functions in this way. "Premackese" is seen better viewed as a communication system. It may be that Aphasic children lack some specifically linguistic ability. (Author/RC)
