Holland, A., Miller, J., Reinmuth, O., Bartlett, C., Fromm, D., Pashek, G., Stein, D., & Swindell, C. (1985). Rapid recovery from aphasia: A detailed language analysis. Brain and Language, 24, 156–173.

General Overview

These language transcripts were gathered under the direction of Audrey Holland and O.M. Reinmuth as part of research project funded by NINCDS entitled “Early Language Recovery Following Stroke.” Dr. Holland contributed them to the CHILDES database in 1986 and reformatted them from SALT to CHAT in 1988.

Patients were seen for 15 minutes a day, 6 days per week throughout the course of their hospitalization, beginning at 24 to 72 hours post-stroke. The daily visits were conducted by two trained speech-language pathologists: one to converse with the patient and the other to observe, tape record, and tally features of the interaction. For each patient there are three transcribed conversations, representing 5-minute segments from the first, middle, and last visits made during the patient’s hospitalization. The file name includes a number that will indicate which visit it is. For example, there are files for the patient coded as Wilde: wilde1.cha, wilde9.cha, and wilde17.cha. In this case, the patient had 17 total visits: wilde1 is the first, wilde9 the ninth, and wilde17 the seventeenth and last.
