Analysis of Spoken Narratives in a Marathi-Hindi-English Multilingual Aphasic Patient
Karbhari-Adhyaru, Medha
Indian Journal of Applied Linguistics, v36 n1-2 p85-103 Jan-Dec 2010
In a multilingual country such as India, the probability that clinicians may not have command over different languages used by aphasic patients is very high. Since formal tests in different languages are limited, assessment of people from diverse linguistic backgrounds presents speech- language pathologists with many challenges. With a view to explore the possibility of eventually designing a suitable assessment procedure for multilingual aphasics, an attempt is made in this paper to discuss some of the language specific narrative devices used in generating spoken narratives by a Marathi-Hindi-English aphasic patient from Mumbai in each language. Different methodologies used in collecting and analyzing these narratives are described in this paper. (Contains 1 table.)
