Final Project Post

  1. Your final post was extremely compelling, especially your video and information about the Broca's Aphasia. Like you had mentioned, it is pretty interesting to understand that damage to one area of the brain can greatly affect your interpretation of language. I took Intro to Language last Spring, and we learned about Aphasia, especially to Broca's area. It is interesting that even though Wernicke's area and Broca's area of the brain are located on different sides, either side that is damaged, has speech damage, just differ in severity.

    After watching your video, I can see why the McGurk Theory is so complex. I listened to your instructions during your video, and while only listening to you speak, I did hear the phonemes, "Ba Ba" as opposed to "Da-Da" when I listen/watched. It really puts into perspective, how difficult our English language can be, especially for people who are either deaf or blind.
