One of the most effective strategy in preventing pathological aging is very early diagnosis. In this project, we are more interested in differences related to “speech production”. Speech samples of both “pathological aging” and “normal aging” are going to be collected regularly. Linguistic markers including lexical richness, semantic units, syntactic complexity and repetitiveness will be assessed.
