Sentence Judgment and Correction Abilities in Persons with Anomic and Conduction Aphasia

Abhishek P Aradhya, Shyamala K C, Shrilekha .

Abstract


Persons with aphasia posses’ difficulty in syntactic judgment, regardless of the aphasia type. Even persons with milder variants with aphasia such as conduction aphasia and anomic aphasia do exhibit deficits on syntactic judgment. The syntactic judgment ability is tested through a judgment task where the participants have to speculate the response if the sentence presented to them is correct or incorrect. In order to counteract this variable, sentence correction task is employed where the participants have to correct the sentence verbally in addition to judgment. Neurologically healthy participants, persons with conduction aphasia and participants with anomic aphasia were recruited in the study. Two objectives were coined. The first objective was to compare the performance of neuro typical participants with persons with aphasia (conduction and anomic aphasia). The results depicted that the performance was poor even in milder variants of aphasia. The second objective was to compare the performance on judgment task with correction task for each of the sub groups, discrepancy was noted for persons with aphasia reflecting the importance of correlating the performance on syntactic judgment with sentence correction.
