Abstract

Increased migration and mobility of labour mean that there are increased numbers of bilingual and multilingual individuals working and receiving care within the healthcare services. Research shows that unfamiliar accents affect speech processing in healthy adults (Adank et al., 2009), with deficits greater for non-native-accented speech (Munro and Derwing, 1995). A growing body of evidence suggests that the effects of accent are more pronounced with individuals with aphasia (Dunton et al., in press; To, 2009): they make significantly more errors with unfamiliaraccented speech than with a familiar accent across a range of language tasks that do not require a verbal response, and that difficulties are more marked for individuals with aphasia than for listeners without aphasia. The present study investigates a) how an unfamiliar accent affects the spoken response of individuals with aphasia, and b) whether individual factors affect unfamiliar accent processing
