Circumstantiality refers to the use of language which is pedantic, repetitive, and overly detailed. This becomes particularly evident when elicitation tasks impose minimal structure, or when impersonal narratives are retold over consecutive occasions. Personal reminiscence is highly specific and localised in time, placing unique demands on cognitive-linguistic systems. It is hypothesised that the nature of this elicitation paradigm will produce a unique psycholinguistic phenotype in those with TLE. Among controls there is a compression of output for impersonal narratives, meaning that they use fewer words over less time and are more fluent. The opposite effect is observed when personal narratives are retold.||URI:||https://ahro.austin.org.au/austinjspui/handle/1/31968||DOI:||10.1016/j.seizure.2022.12.005||ORCID:||Journal:||Seizure||PubMed URL:||36631304||ISSN:||1532-2688||Type:||Journal Article||Subjects:||Autobiographical memory
