Abstract

Little is known about the natural recovery of narrative discourse after stroke. While several studies have analyzed the recovery of language in individuals with aphasia, there are no known studies of the natural recovery of narrative discourse in individuals without diagnosed language disorders. In this study we evaluate the cohesiveness of narrative discourse in a cohort of individuals who have suffered a stroke without a diagnosed language impairment. We analyze their narrative discourse at three intervals post-stroke and report findings that provide insights into the subtle disruptions of language following stroke and the manner in which they change over time.
