Abstract

Sentence repetition is part of the assessment tasks used to better characterise aphasic patients’ oral production. Moreover, impaired sentence and phrase repetition is a core feature of the logopenic variant of primary progressive aphasia. The aim of this study is to present the TEFREP (TEst Français de RÉpétition de Phrases), a French sentence repetition task that manipulates psycholinguistic variables known to affect the performance of aphasic patients. The final version of the TEFREP consists of 24 sentences in which length, semantic reversibility and type of sentence have been manipulated. The task shows good psychometric properties (validity and reliability). Norms according to age and education level have been developed from a sample of 80 healthy adults and older adults. In conclusion, the TEFREP fulfills the current need for a reliable assessment tool of sentence repetition in Canadian French-speaking populations and contributes to the differential diagnosis of language impairment.

Résumé

Évaluer la capacité à répéter des phrases fait partie des tâches d'évaluation utilisées pour bien comprendre la production orale des patients aphasiques. De plus, l'incapacité à répéter des phrases est un des symptômes distinctifs de l'aphasie progressive primaire logopénique. L'objectif de cet article est de présenter un outil pour évaluer la répétition de phrases, en tenant compte des paramètres psycholinguistiques pouvant influencer la performance des patients. La version finale de l'outil, nommé TEFREP (Test Français de Répétition de Phrases) comprend 24 phrases, manipulées selon la longueur, la réversibilité sémantique et le type de phrase. L’instrument a démontré des bonnes propriétés psychométriques (validité et fiabilité) et a été normé auprès de 80 participants adultes et ainés francophones, regroupés selon l'âge et le niveau d'éducation. En somme, le TEFREP comble un besoin d’outils d'évaluation au niveau des capacités de répétition et facilite ainsi le diagnostic différentiel des troubles du langage.
