A link between lexical competition and fluency in aphasia

Botezatu Mona, Mirman Daniel

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


There are at least three distinct accounts of fluency deficits in aphasia. The traditional view is that fluency deficits are specific to language production. The reduced lexical activation theory proposes that non-fluent language production in aphasia is a consequence of reduced overall activation of the lexicon, making it difficult for word representations to reach sufficient activation to drive production. The cognitive control view proposes that fluency deficits in aphasia arise from deficits of resolving competition.
