Vernacular Feature Comprehension and Perception in Persons with Aphasia

This study investigates whether persons with aphasia understand and process sentences with vernacular features in a manner similar to more typical populations. Participants will rate sentences on their naturalness and on whether they make sense, and they will also read sentences while we track their eye movements.
