Abstract

Parkinson’s disease (PD) is one of the most common neurodegenerative diseases, afflicting approximately 1% of adults by age 65 (Shulman et al., 2011). Whereas PD typically presents with a variety of motoric symptoms, including rigidity and bradykinesia, a growing literature describes the cognitive and linguistic effects of PD. Within the limited language literature, however, there has been nominal investigation of reading abilities beyond the isolated word or sentence level even though several lines of evidence suggest this language modality may be vulnerable in PD.
