Question:

Answer:

First, the GRE releases a list of vocabulary words that may be utilized in the exam. There is an APP that has flashcards and will help you study vocabulary words for the GRE. Secondly, I carried a notebook with me. Every time I came across an unknown word, I would add it to my notebook and define it. Also, I would use the word in a sentence to help my understanding of the word's meaning. I also have tips to get through the Verbal section to prevent time wasted.

Question:

How does aphasia affect bilinguals?

Answer:

Aphasia is a medical condition caused by neurological damage due to a stroke, head injury, brain tumor, or progressive neurological disease (National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders [NIDCD], 2017). Aphasia could cause deficits in spoken languages, comprehension, or both. A bilingual individual with aphasia experiences impairments in two languages. Depending on the person, language impairments either occur equally in both languages, or one language is affected more than the other. Age, acquisition, proficiency, and usage of both languages are factors that contribute to the impairments of receptive or expressive functions. One important factor impacting bilingual aphasic individuals is the proficiency of usage of both languages prior to diagnosis. An assumption of language proficiency prior to aphasia should not be made during the assessment due to the variability in the level of abilities of the individuals with bilingual aphasia (Muñoz & Marquardt, 2003). In conclusion, the interconnection between two semantically related languages could be used to innovate clinical practices when assessing and treating bilingual aphasic individuals. Availability of familiar support to facilitate treatment is key and the dynamic could potentially improve when incorporating both languages of the bilingual speaker with aphasia.
