|Abstract:||Although fluency is central to the interpretation and assessment of aphasia, measurement has generally relied on subjective and unreliable procedures, or insecure assumptions about pause and speech duration distributions in spontaneous speech. In this paper, we describe a new and objective approach to the measurement of fluency, and an application of this procedure to brain damaged and control participants. The instrument is sensitive to stroke, and the results include examples of both hypo- and hyper-fluency for both short pause and long pause duration distributions. The results point toward a new approach to language production models, an approach which adopts the concepts and assumptions of complex dynamic systems. © 2005 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.|
