The speech of three conduction aphasic subjects was analyzed in a task of repetrtion of sentences and sentence fragments previously produced by themselves in a picture description narrative. Accurate repetition of sentences and sentence fragments ranged from 8% to 29%. Error analysis of original and repeated productions revealed different performance pattems among subjects. Minimal differences between conditions were evident in a number of preliminary speech efforts for subject 1, whereas subjects 2 and 3 demonstrated substantially more such efforts in the repetition condition. Word level misproductions (e.g. paraphasias, omissions) occurred notably more frequently in repetition than ir original utterances for subjects 1 and 3 but not for subject 2.
