Stroke Stories: Conveying Emotive Experiences in Aphasia
Faculty of Computing, Health and Science
School of Psychology and Social Science
For many years, Professor Chris Code has worked in both clinical and academic capacities highlighting the impact of aphasia on the individuals involved and their family/carers, and has investigated reactions and “adjustment” to aphasia. He has also mentored many research students and academics, and facilitated the description of aphasia from numerous angles, including linguistic approaches. The current chapter encapsulates both of these areas that he has inﬂuenced signiﬁcantly, addressing the ways in which people with aphasia describe emotional experiences, using a variety of linguistic tools to achieve expression of attitudes, opinions, and feelings.
