Abstract

Social communication is an integral part of everyday living and plays a vital role in establishing and maintaining psychosocial wellbeing. Conversations are the most frequent communication activities of older people (Davidson, Worrall, & Hickson, 2003). There is evidence that aphasia impacts on a person’s ability to participate in social conversations. Since the functions of everyday conversations are both transactional and interactional, it is important to understand how engagement in conversations between people with aphasia and their family and friends is accomplished.
