Spontaneous speech samples were elicited from 6 non-brain-damaged elderly subjects and 10 aphasic subjects, and analyzed using the Quantitative Production Analysis (Berndt et al., 2000; Saffran et al., 1989). Aims of the study were to determine the applicability of a protocol developed for one task (story retelling) to a new task (picture description); to examine patterns of QPA scores obtained from a broad range of aphasic subjects unselected by diagnosis; and to compare these to obtained patterns from normal speakers. Implications are discussed of the use and interpretation of QPA values for a range of tasks and aphasic subjects.
