Abstract

Based on the fact, that agrammatic utterances show variant symptoms, our research aim was to investigate by what factors language usage is influenced. In our study we followed a media-specific hypothesis, which refers to the concept of adaptation. Our claim is that the variation in agrammatic symptoms does directly mirror the basic syntactic disorder, but shows adaptation to different interactive and media-specific demands. Therefore in an experimental study we compared the influence of interactivity and modality-specific conditions on formulation in persons with agrammatism and non-aphasic speakers.
