Cardiff Metropolitan University
MetadataShow full item record
The utility of a conversation analytic approach to assess interaction between a PD sufferer and their spouse was investigated. The case study involved an individual suffering from Parkinson’s disease (PD) with no recognised dementia and their spouse being videotaped having a half hour conversation. A 20 minute sample of the data was submitted to detailed analysis using Conversation Analysis (CA) methodology. Patterns of conversational repair sequences and topic initiation were identified. Collaborative strategies known as joint productions were frequently used and compared with both normal and language-impaired interactions. Specific strategies used by the couple and implications for PD management are discussed.
