Abstract

Online sentence-level reading and listening times are sensitive measures of lexical access, parsing, syntactic and semantic integration processes (e.g., Rayner et al, 2004; Trueswell et al, 1993). Studies linking online to offline performance in syntactic processing have shown that persons with aphasia (PWA) show normal or near-to-normal parsing processes on sentences that are comprehended correctly (Caplan & Waters, 2003; Caplan et al., 2007, Dickey & Thompson, 2009). However, their reading times are usually slower than those of control participants even on correct items (e.g., Sung et al, 2011; Chenery et al, 1990), suggesting generally slowed reading in this group.
