Abstract

Researchers have investigated the ways spouses collaboratively overcome the communication barriers they face subsequent to aphasia in one of the partners (e.g., Oelschlaeger & Damico, 2003). These studies have demonstrated ways that the interactional dynamic is employed to re-establish social action after aphasia. However, little has been done to determine how spousal dyads created these modifications. This study was undertaken to investigate how the evolution of the described adaptations to conversation within spousal dyads was accomplished.
