Abstract

Little is known about how people with dementia, in spite of their linguistic and cognitive impairments, build and maintain relationships with other people with dementia. This qualitative study investigates how people with dementia (n=5) use linguistic resources to construct their roles and relationships with other people with dementia in a) talk about others and b) talk with each other. Naturalistic conversations between the participants and also between each participant and the researcher are analyzed using Systemic Functional Linguistics. Results of the study and implications are discussed.
