Abstract

With the number of bilingual people growing, a better understanding of how bilingualism affects aphasia recovery is increasingly important. The present, ongoing study examines the effect of intensive semantic naming therapy on within and across language generalization for cognates and non-cognates, in a bilingual individual with chronic, severe expressive aphasia. Preliminary results have demonstrated relative increases in confrontation naming skills in the following conditions: trained vs. untrained and Spanish vs. English. Although cognate status does not yet appear to have affected changes in accuracy, we hypothesize that cognates will positively influence cross-linguistic generalization.
