Discourse Markers Used by a Person with Aphasia: Effects of Conversation Partner Training. In Clinical Aphasiology Conference: Clinical Aphasiology Conference (2004 : 34th : Park City, UT : May 2004) / : (2004).
This study describes the discourse markers used by a person with aphasia in
conversations with two student volunteers before and after multi-modality
communication training. Discourse markers used by the person with aphasia were
identified in three 10-minute pre- and three post-training conversations with each student.
Types of discourse markers used included: initiation, affiliation, termination,
reorientation, and participant role markers (Simmons-Mackie and Damico, 1996).
Results indicated no statistically significant differences in rates of discourse markers used
by the resident in post-training conversations. Strategies used by the resident to produce
the above discourse markers are described. Clinical implications are discussed.
