  • In this review, I discuss conversation analytic informed intervention for aphasia, a language disorder acquired following brain damage. As well as describing this form of intervention and outlining features of the studies produced over the last 15 to 20 years that provide evidence of its effectiveness, I discuss some features of this approach that may be of relevance to interventionist conversation analysis more generally. Data are in British English and in Swedish with English translation.
