Abstract : A system of twenty FORTRAN and PL/1 programs, developed for an analysis of aphasic and normal speech transcripts, is described in detail. The programs aid in lexical, grammatical, paralinguistic, and statistical analyses as well as in data preparation and correction. They can also be used in schizophrenic and other kinds of pathological language and are adaptable to the analysis of written-language samples and the investigation of authorship and style. (Author)
