The purpose of this study was to determine whether or not severely aphasic adults perform better with personally relevant language materials than with otherwise similar nonpersonal language materials.

Subjects responded to personally relevant and nonpersonal materials in four language tasks: auditory comprehension, speech repetition, naming, and reading comprehension. Subjects showed significantly better performance on personally relevant items than on nonpersonal items. This was true for each of the four tasks.
