In this paper, we look at interactions in speech and language therapy with people who have developed aphasia following brain injury. We focus, in particular, on the phenomenon of word searches and analyse how one of the symptoms of aphasia – that is anomia (difficulty or inability to produce words or to name stimuli) – is managed in interaction. Using a sequential approach, we highlight some peculiarities in the structure of these sequences, especially when the searched-for-word is ratified. Multimodal analysis allows us to account for the central role played by visible resources in the collaborative solution of the search, in particular by pointing gestures, which are frequently used by aphasic speakers in word search sequences.

Abstract

In this paper, we look at interactions in speech and language therapy with people who have developed aphasia following brain injury. We focus, in particular, on the phenomenon of word searches and analyse how one of the symptoms of aphasia – that is anomia (difficulty or inability to produce words or to name stimuli) – is managed in interaction. Using a sequential approach, we highlight some peculiarities in the structure of these sequences, especially when the searched-for-word is ratified. Multimodal analysis allows us to account for the central role played by visible resources in the collaborative solution of the search, in particular by pointing gestures, which are frequently used by aphasic speakers in word search sequences.
