This study proposes the outcomes regarding the administration of the first preparative translation and adaptation into the Finnish language of the equal form A of the Italian Assessment Battery for Communication (ABaCo) to a sample of neurotypical Finnish adults (n=36). Partakers overall showed good performance, only a bit lower scores were attained on the extralinguistic scale. Such results elucidate a number of contrasts in the manner Finnish people interpret pragmatically defying communicative situations.
