Analysis of Spontaneous Language in the Older Normal Population.
Shewan, Cynthia M.; Henderson, Vicki Lynn
Journal of Communication Disorders, v21 n2 p139-54 Apr 1988
Language sample data from normal subjects (ages 40-79) were collected to determine how normal aging might affect performance on a picture description task, routinely used for assessment of aphasic individuals. Only an increase in the number of paraphasias and a decrease in communication efficiency correlated with increased age. (DB)
