Singh, Sameer; Bookless, Tom
International Journal of Applied Linguistics, v7 n2 p165-82 1997
Compares language patterns in two moderately aphasic adults over age 60 with left hemisphere damage, using measures of lexical richness (word frequency). Argues for the usefulness of evaluating patients on conversational speech and the role of extensive linguistic analysis in prognosis and therapy. The discussion considers both qualitative and quantitative differences in the patients and the different natures of the disorders. (MSE)
