Abstract

The study of alignment and underlying processes like priming has become an important aspect of linguistic research. We examine if syntactic priming does enhance the accuracy and speed of language comprehension in non-brain-injured people and patients with aphasia. In contrast to our hypothesis, the participants tend to take more time to respond when they are syntactically primed. Therefore, we assume some kind of negative syntactic priming that inhibits the cognitive processing of syntactic information. The long-term goal of subsequent research is the development and validation of linguistic material for speech-language therapy in the context of aphasic language impairments concerning syntax.
