Abstract

The purpose of this study was to validate experimental video stimuli designed to examine the influence of emotionality on discourse produced by Arabic speakers with aphasia. Ten healthy Arabic speakers described events depicted in 15 videos within three emotional categories: positive, negative, and neutral. Participants responded to a questionnaire judging the videos on three emotion dimensions, logical sequence, and interest. Elicited discourse was analyzed for content units. Results of the questionnaire and content unit analysis were instrumental in selecting a subset of nine videos used in investigating discourse production in aphasia. Results also predicted performance in the aphasia study.
