Abstract

Person with aphasia’s participation in group conversations in presence of her/his spouse have not been extensively studied. The development of a procedure that addresses the spouses’contributions (i.e., ‘repair’, ‘speaking for’ and ‘support’) as well as the reaction and participation of the person with aphasia in an interview situation is presented. Results from eight couples indicate that spouses are quite active when the aphasic person has the floor. Aphasic persons most often approve what the spouse has contributed and continue to participate fully. However, unsolicited ‘speaking for’ behaviors are sometimes followed by a decrease participation in conversation of people with aphasia.
