Abstract

Morphological and syntactic impairments often co-occur in aphasia. Whether they are causally related is an issue of long-standing debate. This paper reports a case study of one individual with such impairments and describes their recovery in response to linguistically-motivated treatment. CL is a 56 year-old male with Broca's aphasia and limited capacity to produce syntactically complex utterances or grammatical morphology. He was enrolled in the Treatment of Underlying Forms protocol (Thompson, 2001). CL acquired production of Wh- questions, indicating improved access to CP, but his production of CP-related morphology declined. These patterns indicate that the recovery of syntactic and morphological processes in aphasia are at least partially independent.
