    In cross-linguistic studies of aphasia, the comprehension and production of derived structures are known to be difficult for agrammatic speakers. Our project investigates how native Akan speakers with agrammatism comprehend and produce derived structures, comparing our observations with previous findings. Since Akan is a tone language, we also want to know the role tone plays in the processing of derived structures in the language. This project also provides an insight into how the phenomenon of co-referencing is processed by agrammatic speakers.
