Abstract

This study compares Face-to-Face with Chat-dialogues and noninteractive oral and written text production in German-speaking agrammatic and non-aphasic persons. It is claimed that variation in agrammatic symptoms does not directly mirror the basic syntactic disorder, but reveals adaptation to various interactive and modality-specific demands. Therefore, we compared in an experimental study the impact of different tasks in chronic agrammatic patients and matches normal controls. On the whole, the study shows that, in spite of their language disorders, mildly to moderately chronic agrammatics, just like normal persons, are able to choose between different language styles, adapting them according to communication goal and media performance.
