Studies about speech characteristics of Alzheimer patients reveal their difficulties to search for words and their problems to produce utterances according to the communicative situation. This article examines the utterances produced by mild and moderate Alzheimer patients and normal elderly subjects after pausing during a conversation. The sample was constituted by 21 normal elderly subjects and 16 Alzheimer patients. Both groups were assessed within The Age Associated Dementia Project at the School of Medicine in the University of Concepción through a multiphasic procedure in which the MMSEm and PFAQm criteria for cognitive impairment and the DSM-III and CIE-10 criteria for dementia were used. The speech samples were gathered through recorded conversations with the subjects. The speech material was transcribed into simple notation. The utterance content after a pause that expressed a difficulty in discourse planning was besides analysed. The findings reveal that Alzheimer patients show difficulties to complete coherently utterances interrupted by a pause.
