Something I’ve been noticing is that mom’s vocabulary has changed since her stroke. She always spoke well and used words correctly, but since the stroke she’s been using strange formal phrasing and multi syllable terms that aren’t common.
Like today for instance… She says to me as I am wheeling her to the bathroom “It has been precipitating”… Took me a couple of seconds to understand she was saying “Its raining.”
And she’s using phrases like “It was not my intention, I assure you.”
I know with strokes aphasia is common but that is not what is happening – mom is not using incorrect words, she’s using archaic, formal and uncommon words correctly and in long phrases and sentences in a spontaneous manner.
Just find it really curious.
