In this way, the context of the situation and the redundancies present in normal conversational interactions are permitted to exert their influence. The CADL correlates surprisingly highly with other standardized tests of aphasia that are administered in the clinical setting. 84 with the BDAE. 87 with the Functional Communication Profile, developed by Martha Taylor (1965) to evaluate functional communication. A stepwise multiple regression procedure indicated that, of the four tests, the CADL accounted for the greatest amount of variability.

These results suggested that Broca's aphasies had particular difficulty in comprehending sentences when the meaning was dictated by syntactic mechanisms alone. When they were able to make use of the semantic aspects, such as what made sense in terms of their world knowledge, their comprehension was much better. This indicated a possible separation of semantic and syntactic functioning in their comprehension processing. Schwartz, Saffran, and Marin (1980), using several different tasks involving the decoding of simple subjectverb-object (S-V-O) reversible active and passive sentences, confirmed Broca's aphasies' difficulties in processing these syntactic aspects of spoken sentences.

Porch (1967) reports results of the PICA in percentile scores. Aphasie patients who achieve low overall percentiles are severe and those who achieve high overall percentiles are mild. When the comprehension deficit on the PICA is compared for low and high percentile scoring groups, little difference is found. Patients from the forty-fifth to the ninety-fifth percentiles perform equally well on the two auditory subtests, with mean scores of 14 to 15, where 15 is a perfect score. Although this suggests that there is little relationship between severity of aphasia and the degree of comprehension deficit, such is not the actual case.
