Context And Comprehension - A Neurolinguistic And Interactional Approach To The Understanding Of Semantic Pragmatic Disorder

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

In the present study we provide thorough descriptions of two children with a semantic-pragmatic disorder, a subgroup within the group of specific and severe developmental language disorders, from a neurolinguistic and interactional perspective. We argue that the pragmatic problems, at least in these two girls, are most probably secondary to their semantic'conceptual deficit. If sufficient contextual cues are provided comprehension is improved and, as a consequence, the pragmatic problems are reduced.
