|Provenance||This language system was used in the Clinical Center’s (CC) Rehabilitation Department to help patients with aphasia learn to speak and differentiate between words. The recorder was used to record the proper pronunciation of a word by the instructor and then the student’s pronunciation. The student could then play back both recordings to hear the difference.|
