Sammanfattning (abstract):
In today’s Western society, writing is an important skill in fulfilling many aspects of everyday life. Suffering from impaired writing ability means a great loss for the individual and changes life dramatically. Research on single-word production has long been well established in the field of acquired writing difficulties, for diagnostic purposes as well as for rehabilitation. The description in the present study is an attempt to focus also on text processing. The final text, as it looks when the writer has decided to finish it, is analyzed. But in addition to analyzing the end product of the writing activity, the composing of the text is also studied through recorded data revealing what words have been changed or how sentences have been rearranged. This an experimental study in which eight aphasic subjects were asked to write two texts, one, a free narration and the other a story eliciting task based on pictures. The results have been compared with those of a reference group. The analysis showed that the aphasic subjects wrote shorter texts with a lower writing speed. In composing the texts the aphasic subjects deleted the same proportion of keystrokes, as the reference group did, but performed their edits on another linguistic level than the reference group did. By interviews the majority of the aphasic subjects describe their impaired writing ability as a great loss From the above findings a single-case study with the purpose of exploring compensatory strategies and training possibilities through computational writing support is presented.
