Abstract

Difficulty producing passive sentences is common in agrammatic aphasia. However, the source of this deficit is unclear due to methodological issues in previous off-line studies. This study examined syntactically primed active and passive sentence production using eyetracking in nine control and agrammatic speakers to determine the source of passive production difficulty. Results showed that the agrammatic speakers made substantial role reversal errors in passives and produced actives instead of passives, but had little difficulty producing passive morphology. The on-line data, eye movements and speech onset latency, further provided evidence of difficulty constructing passive structure in the face of preserved morphology.
