Conversational prosodic interactivity when one partner has aphasia

Eugene H. Buder, Jamie L. Edrington

The purpose of this study is to document prosodic interactivity, and its preservation in a woman with non-fluent aphasia. Fundamental frequency and sound pressure level records are examined for sinusoidal models. In-phase and anti-phase partner relationships in these models may represent synchrony. These measurements demonstrate that prosodic management of conversational rhythms is robust even when expressive language is disturbed.
