Lexical ambiguity resolution in non-fluent and fluent aphasia: eye-tracking data
Inefficient lexical processing has been found in both fluent and non-fluent aphasia, although different underlying mechanisms were proposed for those two clinical populations (Prather et al., 1997). Individuals with non-fluent aphasia were suggested to have delayed initial lexical activation, while problems of individuals with fluent aphasia concerned inhibition of irrelevant activation. The current study was designed to further tap into the time course of lexical processing in non-fluent and fluent aphasia. Specifically, lexical ambiguity resolution was investigated using an eye‐tracking‐while‐listening paradigm.
