Mentis, Michelle; Prutting, Carol A.
Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, v34 n3 p583-95 Jun 1991
This study developed a multidimensional topic analysis sensitive to patterns in topic management appropriate for use with head-injured adults. Language samples of a closed-head-injured adult and a matched normal adult were compared. Results demonstrated the analysis' potential to reliably identify, quantify, and describe differences between subjects in discourse topic management. (Author/DB)
