This study explores the syntactic structures displayed by persons with dementia in conversation. Results bolster strategies that foster intricate linguistic and interactional talk with persons with dementia. It is deemed that these strategies will help raise the interactional chances that are missing as reported by and about persons abiding in an assisted living facility (Brooker 2011).
