General Overview

The PLan-V Aphasia Corpus contains spoken discourse data collected from Greek-speaking People with Aphasia (PWA). The corpus is the outcome of the research activities of the project “PLan-V: A Speech and Language Therapy Platform with Virtual Agent”, which aims to develop a technologically assisted, speech and language intervention platform for people with chronic neurogenic communication disorders, such as aphasia. One of the services offered to clinicians via the PLan-V platform is a machine-learning system that automatically assesses aphasia severity through patients’ speech samples.

The corpus contains evaluation data of the machine-learning system for aphasia severity classification. Protocol data were collected with the use of a web-based application, which integrates 4 tasks of the AphasiaBank standard discourse protocol:
