Auclair-Ouellet, Noémie ; Fossard, Marion ; Macoir, Joël ; Laforce, Robert

In: Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research (JSLHR), 2020, p. 1-16

Purpose Better performance for actions compared to objects has been reported in the semantic variant of primary progressive aphasia (svPPA). This study investigated the influence of the assessment task (naming, semantic picture matching) over the dissociation between objects and actions. Method Ten individuals with svPPA and 17 matched controls completed object and...

Troubles de la production écrite dans la variante sémantique de l’aphasie primaire progressive : caractérisation des processus altérés et recommandations thérapeutiques = Written language production disorders in semantic variant of primary progressive aphasia: The characterization of altered cognitive processes and treatment recommendations

Dépraz, Audelore ; Fossard, Marion ; d’Honincthun, Peggy

Les troubles de la production écrite de type dysgraphie de surface font partie des critères diagnostiques de la variante sémantique de l’aphasie primaire progressive (APP-s). Cependant, un recensement des études décrivant les différents patterns de difficultés orthographiques des patients APP-s met en évidence que si l’atteinte de la voie d’adressage, dans les modèles séquentiels,...

Développement de la version québécoise francophone du Children’s Communication Checklist – 2 (CCC-2) : Normalisation et équivalence métrique

Vézina, Marie ; Sylvestre, Audette ; Québec, QC Canada ; Fossard, Marion

In: Canadian Journal of Speech-Language Pathology & Audiology (CJSLPA), 2013, vol. 37, p. 156-168

The assessment of language pragmatics is of prime importance for differential diagnosis between language disorders and pervasive developmental disorders, both in speech therapy and child psychiatry. Indeed language pragmatics can provide discriminating insights that help properly identify the etiology of problems, and thus guide the child to appropriate resources. There are however few tools for...

Working memory and semantic involvement in sentence processing: A case of pure progressive amnesia

Fossard, Marion ; Rigalleau, François ; Puel, Michèle ; Nespoulous, Jean-Luc ; Viallard, Gérard ; Démonet, Jean-François ; Cardebat, Dominique

In: Neuropsychologia, 2006, vol. 44, no. 3, p. 335-338

ED, a 83-year-old woman, meets the criteria of pure progressive amnesia, with gradual impairment of episodic and autobiographical memory, sparing of semantic processing and strong working memory (WM) deficit. The dissociation between disturbed WM and spared semantic processing permitted testing the role of WM in processing anaphors like pronouns or repeated names. Results showed a globally normal...

Indirect anaphora in English and French: A cross-linguistic study of pronoun resolution

Cornish, Francis ; Garnham, Alan ; Cowles, H. Wind ; Fossard, Marion ; Andrée, Virginie

In: Journal of Memory and Language, 2005, vol. 52, no. 3, p. 363-376

There is disagreement within both linguistics and psycholinguistics concerning the use of unaccented third person pronouns to refer to implicit referents. Some researchers (e.g., Erkü & Gundel, 1987) argue that it is impossible or highly marked, while others (e.g., Yule, 1982) maintain that it is not only acceptable but commonly used in normal discourse. However, both sides in the debate may be...

The role of Basal Ganglia in Language Production: evidence from Parkinson's disease

Macoir, Joël ; Fossard, Marion ; Mérette, Chantal ; Langlois, Mélanie ; Chantal, Sophie ; Auclair-Ouellet, Noémie

In: Journal of Parkinson's Disease, 2013, vol. 3, p. 393-397

According to the dominant view in the literature, basal ganglia do not play a direct role in language but are involved in cognitive control required by linguistic and non-linguistic processing. In Parkinson's disease, basal ganglia impairment leads to motor symptoms and language deficits; those affecting the production of verbs have been frequently explored. According to a controversial theory,...
