Abstract: Repetitions, revisions, and fill/pause behaviors are produced by people with aphasia but the factors that contribute to these disfluencies are poorly understood. We analyzed disfluent behaviors during discourse and correlated these measures with WAB and CCRSA scores to determine how linguistic impairment and communication confidence related to speech fluency.

Abstract:
The relationship between how well persons with mild aphasia are able to convey main concepts in narratives and narrative coherence is understudied.
