Abstract

The current study investigated Korean passive sentence comprehension deficits in aphasia and its underlying processing mechanisms using three types of syntactic structures: 1) active sentences with a 2-argument structure, 2) active sentences with a 3-argument structure, and 3) passive counterparts of active sentences with a 2-argument structure. Persons with aphasia showed differentially greater difficulties in passive than 2-place active sentences compared to the normal elderly adults, but the group differences were not significant between the passive and 3-place active sentences. Working memory, not the short-term memory, was significantly correlated with overall aphasia severity and performance on sentence comprehension tasks.
