dc.description.abstractCode-mixing is a well-known phenomenon in bilingual speakers, both with and without aphasia, but it is yet unclear whether it is pathological or strategic behaviour. Interviews were conducted with bilingual speakers with and without aphasia. First, a qualitative analysis took place. Second, the statistical analysis only used data from the bilingual speakers with aphasia. Correlational analyses were performed as to see whether a relationship existed between code-mixing, pathological and/ or strategic behaviour. The statistical analysis showed there was no significant relationship between code-mixing and pathological behaviour or code-mixing and strategic behaviour. This was in accordance with the qualitative analysis. It was concluded that code-mixes could be both pathological and strategic in the population of bilingual speakers with aphasia who participated in the current study. A significant limitation of the current study was the small participant group who participated in the statistical analysis (N=9), which caused an inconclusive result from the statistical analysis.en_US
