Structural Patterns in Conversations with a Woman Who Has Autism.
Dobbinson, Sushie; Perkins, Michael R.; Boucher, Jill
Journal of Communication Disorders, v31 n2 p113-34 Mar-Apr 1998
Conversational analysis was used to evaluate conversation between an adult with autism and a researcher. Analysis identified differences in conversational style based on such features as topic movement, topic maintenance, repairs, interference from earlier structures, common collocations, overlaps, latching, and pauses. Findings suggest the autistic individual's characteristic overly repetitive style may be cognitively motivated. (Author/DB)
