Verb Retrieval in Fluent Aphasia in Two Elicitation Contexts. In Clinical Aphasiology Conference: Clinical Aphasiology Conference (2004 : 34th : Park City, UT : May 2004) / : (2004).
This study investigated the presence and nature of verb deficits in 4 individuals with
fluent aphasia in both single-word and narrative contexts. All participants showed
impaired verb naming. Their verb retrieval showed a syntactic effect, having more
difficulty retrieving two-place (transitive) than one-place (intransitive) verbs. In addition,
the more arguments associated with a verb, the worse their production of argument
structure in narratives, indicating impaired use of verb-related information in narrative
context. A verb's semantic complexity had a clear effect on verb retrieval in the narrative
task only. Their over-reliance on simple, all-purpose, 'light' verbs in narratives also
indicated impaired verb retrieval in their spontaneous speech.
