Overview

Comprehension of Wh-Dependencies in Broca's Aphasia by Vanja Kljajevic

This book investigates whether Croatian aphasics, in particular those diagnosed with Broca's aphasia, have difficulty comprehending wh-dependencies. The tested structures include subject and object direct, embedded, long-distance and passivized who and which questions as well as relative clauses introduced by which. It is shown that differences in the deficit patterns between English- and Croatian-speaking Broca's aphasics are due to structural as well as processing differences. The Croatian data are explained in terms of a case-cueing comprehension strategy and the competition model.
