Abstract

This study examined comprehension and production of both canonical and noncanonical sentences in 46 individuals with stroke-induced (StrAph) [26 Broca’s aphasic with agrammatism (StrAg); 20 anomic (StrAn)] and 32 with primary progressive aphasia (PPA) [15 agrammatic (PPA-G); 17 logopenic (PPA-L)], using the Northwestern Assessment of Verbs and Sentences (NAVS; Thompson, experimental version). The two agrammatic, StrAg and PPA-G, groups performed in a very similar manner, with both showing significantly greater difficulty with noncanonical compared to canonical sentences in both modalities, compared to StrAn and PPA-L participants.
