Abstract

A rule-based system was used to score performance deviations in the connected speech of non-brain-damaged adults, 10 adults with fluent aphasia, and 10 with nonfluent aphasia. Performance deviations were productions that did not qualify as words or as correct information units (Nicholas & Brookshire, 1993). They were assigned to nine categories. Speech samples from both aphasic groups contained significantly greater percentages of inaccurate words, false starts, and part-words or unintelligible productions than those of the non-brain-damaged group. Speech samples from the nonfluent aphasic group also contained significantly greater percentages of the word "and" and nonword fillers than those of the non-brain-damaged group. Individual aphasic subject's performance generally was consistent with that of their group.
