Abstract
The purpose of this research is to describe the post-stroke language in the case review of hospital medical rehabilitation patients Dr. Suyoto Bintaro South Jakarta; explains the differences of pre- and post-stroke language, speech-language barrier and stroke patient writings. The methodology of this research is qualitative with research method from cognitive psychologist, Robert J. Sternberg. Therefore, data collecting is done by combining case study as well as self-reports such as verbal storytelling, self-assessment, or diaries. Data collection techniques are complemented by interview techniques, and medical documentation of medical rehabilitation records. The results of this research are the findings of post-stroke language disorders in the form of speech impediment (aphasia), delayed speech-language, and the barrier of the language of writing. In the first trimester to the second, the patient's speech impedance was overcome so that the aphasia disorder is discontinued. In addition, patient also faces syntactic and semantic barriers. Syntactically, the patient has difficulty forming long and complex words. While semantically, the patient would experience difficulty in connecting the meaning of the word he thinks and what she actually meant. The language barrier of the patient's writing is difficult to read, except the post 2 years of stroke. For written language, there is a change in the shape of the writings and reduced ability to write with her right hand from before.
