Abstract

Connected language elicitation procedures used to describe and quantify language vary among the many sampling techniques; however, few studies have compared sampling procedures within the same study participants. This study sought to compare the Story Retell Procedure (SRP) to six additional sampling procedures quantifying eight verbal productivity, three verbal disruption, and two syntactic measures. Results from thirteen individuals with aphasia revealed substantial inter-subject variability with high correlation coefficients between the SRP and other language elicitation tasks for the majority of the linguistic measures. The SRP produced either no difference across tasks or significantly greater instances of the dependent variable.
