Grammatical Encoding in Aphasia: What do we know and how do we move forward?
Yasmeen Faroqi-Shah, PhD, CCC/SLP
University of Maryland

Impairments in producing grammatically well-formed sentences in post-stroke aphasia have generated theoretical interest because of the insights they provide into how morphosyntax is encoded. This talk will examine research on agrammatic production deficits to consolidate what we know about three hallmark features of agrammatism: fragmented sentence structure, verb morphology errors and verb deficits. The relationship between asyntactic comprehension and agrammatic production will also be examined.

Author Bio: Dr. Yasmeen Faroqi-Shah is an Associate Professor at the Department of Hearing and Speech Sciences at the University of Maryland. Her research focuses on morphosyntactic production deficits in aphasia and their intervention, the interaction between cognition and language, and bilingualism.
