Differences in verb and noun comprehension in aphasia

There is growing evidence that verbs are more difficult to processes than nouns (Cappa & Perani, 2002) and that verb retrieval is more commonly affected in aphasia compared to nouns (Jonkers & Bastiaanse, 1998). However, existing observations are largely based on naming and semantic judgment tasks. We investigate whether this processing difficulty is modality general. In this study for the first time we directly compare difficulty of comprehension of verbs versus nouns in Russian in individuals with and without aphasia using a novel instrument – a single-word comprehension test presented on a tablet.
