Abstract

The purpose of the study was to investigate 1) whether persons with aphasia (PWA) showed differential patterns between noun and verb naming tasks compared to normal elderly individuals (NEI) and 2) whether the two groups showed differential effects of verb argument complexity on a Korean-verb naming task. Results revealed that PWA showed differentially greater difficulties in verbs than nouns compared to NEI. PWA presented worse performance on unaccusative and 3-place verbs than unergative verbs. However, these patterns were not observed in NEA. Dissociated patterns of verb argument complexity were discussed with respect to Korean-specific verb argument structures.
