Abstract

The nature of breakdown in apraxia of speech (AoS) continues to be a subject of debate. Determining which output variables influence production could assist in settling this debate. This study with 7 German and 7 English speakers with post-stroke output impairment showed significant independent effects of word frequency and phonotactic probability on repetition accuracy of (near) homophones in English and German. Only a moderate correlation existed between accuracy for the English and German subjects. Results are discussed in terms of the possible loci of breakdown in models of speech output and the implications for the assessment and treatment of AoS.
