Abstract

We will present an empirical study on residual aphasia. In spontaneous speech of patients with residual aphasia slight deficits still seem to exist. This study aims at clearly defining residual aphasia based on spontaneous speech. Therefore patients with residual aphasia and healthy controls were tested with the Aachen Aphasia Test. Several additional aspects of spontaneous speech were chosen and evaluated in detail. Significant differences between the groups were observed for some parameters, e.g. lexical cohesion, word finding difficulties. Altogether, this study presents an important contribution to the diagnosis of residual aphasia.
