Sample text

However, one important aspect of discourse that has not been readily assessed in adults with aphasia is the lexical diversity of their verbal production. Given the observation that many of the error types observed in adults with aphasia appear to be, at least in part, lexical in nature, it seems of particular importance to refine the tools we use in measuring aspects of the lexical domain in discourse production. One measure of lexical diversity in conversation has enjoyed particular popularity in the child language literature for decades: type-token ratio (TTR).

Lexical diversity in adults with fluent vs nonfluent aphasia In an attempt to determine the sensitivity of the measures to aphasia type, several paired sample Mests were performed. 01. 05. 45, p < . 05. See Table 3 for means and standard deviations for groups’ D, NDW, and TTR results. 34 APHASIOLOGY DISCUSSION The first objective of the investigation was to examine the relationships among D, TTR and NDW across three sample lengths: whole sample, 100–word, and 200– word. Since D is a relatively new measure of lexical diversity, one that had not previously been used to assess the conversational vocabulary of adults with aphasia, it was appropriate to determine the extent of the relationships among this new measure and two other, wellestablished measures.
