Abstract

The current study investigated whether persons with aphasia (PWA) exhibit longer processing times than normal adult individuals (NAI) in conditions that require more complex linguistic integration, using a self-paced word-by-word sentence reading method. The word-category comparison revealed that PWA show significantly longer reading times for nouns with high integration cost than for determiners with least linguistic integration cost compared to NAI. These results are consistent with the findings that PWA exhibit language-processing difficulties at points of high processing demand (Caplan, et al., 1985; McNeil, 1982).
