Abstract

The current discourse-based study presents a case history of a Ph.D.-educated mechanical engineer with conduction aphasia (C-APH01). His most recent standardized test scores were within normal limits, but he reported persistent restrictions in his social and professional interactions. Narrative analysis frameworks designed to reflect narrative functionality were used: analysis of narrative storyline and background functions (Longacre, 1989, 1996); analysis of the referential and evaluative (prominence-adding) functions in narratives (Labov, 1972, 1997; Olness et al., 2012); and analysis of efficiency of transmission of narrative information (Nicholas & Brookshire, 1993).
