Abstract:

An important development in linguistic models is the shift from construction-
oriented rules to elementary computations that generate complex grammatical
expressions. In this monograph we presents a systematic linguistic examination
of an Italian aphasic speaker focusing on locality conditions as configurational
restrictions on syntactic computations and on functional elements as
fundamental triggers for computational processes. The explanatory framework
we adopt considers the grammar to be an integral part of language processing; it
is a derivational model compatible with well-known parsing strategies such as
the minimal link condition and the minimal chain principle. This approach to
aphasia supports the hypothesis that linguistic deficit is an impoverishment of
procedural capacities that manifests itself in reduced syntactic structures. The
book is recommended for advanced undergraduates and graduate students in
neurolinguistics, psycholinguistics and theoretical linguistics, as well as medical
researchers and speech therapists interested in the same fields. It can be
adopted as principal text for the specific domain (Syntax and aphasia).
