Following the theoretical models proposed by Krauss et al. (2000) and Rothi and Heilman (1997) it was reasoned that gesture movements assessed in tests of limb apraxia and those observed in lexical gesture reflect different underlying processing. Therefore, it was hypothesised that in a conversational context, speakers with nonfluent aphasia and concomitant limb apraxia would produce the full range of lexical gesture types. Further, in speakers with nonfluent aphasia, pantomime deficits as measured on formal tests of pantomime were not expected to correlate with the amount of pantomime-type 46 APHASIOLOGY lexical gestures produced during spontaneous conversation.
