Aphasic individuals have a tendency to decode past tense and future tense sentences as if the sentences were in the present tense. This study assessed the influence of additional surface structure markers of past or future tense on this comprehension process. The results indicated that additional markers significantly facilitate the comprehension of tense related sentences by aphasic subjects. Implications for sentence decoding strategies and clinical management are discussed.
