ABSTRACT

Aphasia is an acquired language disorder, resulting from damage to the cerebral cortex after stroke or other neurological insult. It results in language disturbances in both production and comprehension, affecting spoken and written language. The impact on the individual’s life may be extreme, resulting in employment loss, and difficulty maintaining personal relationships. Effective intervention relies on accurate diagnosis through assessment. Clinical assessment materials for aphasia are available for many Indo-European languages. Linguistically informed clinical assessments for aphasia are not available for Arabic however. Translations and adaptations of English assessments have been developed e.g. the Arabic version of the Comprehensive Aphasia Test (Abou El-Ella et al., 2013), and the Kasr El-Aini Arabic Aphasia Test-KAAT (Sallam et al., 2002). Those tests are not linguistically driven by the structures of Arabic, but are modifications of non-Arabic tests e.g. Aachen Aphasia Test (Huber, Poeck and Weniger, 1983), the Comprehensive Aphasia Test (Swinburn, Porter and Howard, 2004), and the Modified Chesher Test (El-Tamawy, 1980). These tests fail to take account of Arabic linguistic features, leading to inaccurate diagnosis, and hence inappropriate interventions. Aphasia in Qatari Arabic, a variety of Gulfian Arabic, has not been explored yet. To the best of our knowledge, there are no published studies on Aphasia in Qatari Arabic. Furthermore, normative data, aphasia assessment materials, and control data are not available for Qatari Arabic. The aim of this project is to develop a comprehensive aphasia battery test for Qatari Arabic speakers with aphasia. The project will consist of five major stages: development of a normative database for Qatari Arabic (from which stimuli would be selected), development of the cognitive and language subtests, control data for each subtest, clinical trials of the battery, and revision of the subtests in line with feedback from patients and clinicians. The resulting database and battery will be driven by linguistic features specific to the Arabic language and culture. The development of a normative database and an aphasia battery will provide an invaluable resource for clinicians and researchers in Qatar and the Arabic-speaking world. It would further form and invaluable clinical resource for speech and language clinic in Europe and North America, which receive a substantial number of patients from the Gulf countries every year.
