Abstract

Treatment for people with neurogenic communication disorders commonly concentrates on facilitating the communication of their needs and is in danger of sidelining the expression of attitudes and emotion. Evaluation is intrinsically involved in communication and functions in discourse to express the speaker’s opinions, to build solidarity with the listener and organise the discourse (2000). The expression of emotion is of great significance because it is by sharing feelings that we can belong (Martin, 2004).
