Abstract

Self-correctional strategies in the conversational speech of aphasic and non-aphasic brain-damaged adults were analyzed for frequency of occurrence and percentage of success. Similar strategies were used by groups resulting in the same rank order of most to least successful for delay, association, description and generalization. Further analysis of self-correctional strategies among aphasic subgroups indicated that frequency and success of strategies were not significantly related to type of aphasia. Severity level and success were significantly correlated. Use and success of a particular strategy appeared to depend on the amount of information about the target word which was available to the subject at the time of error. © 1977, All rights reserved.
