Semantic comprehension in Aphasia

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The AA constructed a multiple choice test to evaluate the ability of the aphasic patients to understand the meaning of words in clusters of semantically similar alternatives. The clinical usefulness and the psychometric characteristics of the test are discussed. The results of the patients in this test were compared with other tests for phonetic and syntactic comprehension; an attempt was made to specify the psycholinguistic characteristics of the receptive disorders in different aphasic syndromes.
