On the Assessment of Grammatical Gender Knowledge in Aphasia: The Danger of Relying on Explicit Metalinguistic Tasks.
Scarna, Antonina; Ellis, Andrew W.
Language and Cognitive Processes, v17 n2 p185-201 Apr 2002
Studied a bilingual Italian-English aphasic patient who was very poor in categorizing Italian nouns for grammatical gender in explicit metalinguistic tasks, and was at chance when gender could not be inferred from the word's phonology. However, he showed a good ability to modify adjectives to match the gender of nouns in a task that involved translating adjective-noun phrases from English into Italian. (Author/VWL)
