Abstract

This presentation employs two qualitative research methodologies, conversation analysis (CA) and phenomenology, to describe the evolution of eleven compensatory strategies within the conversational performance of a particular individual with aphasia. By comparing conversational data prior to the individual’s stroke with data samples 6 months, 12 months, and 24 months post onset, the evolution of his compensatory adaptations to aphasia are documented and analyzed. This provides a dynamic perspective on his conversational compensations and their utility. Theoretical and clinical implications are discussed.
