Product Overview

This critical history of research on acquired language deficits(aphasias) demonstrates the usefulness of linguistic analysis of aphasic syndromefor neuropsychology, linguistics, and psycholinguistics. Drawing on new empiricalstudies, Grodzinsky concludes that the use of grammatical tools for the descriptionof the aphasias is critical. The selective nature of these deficits offers a novelview into the inner workings of our language faculty and the mechanisms that supportit.In contrast to other proposals that the left anterior cerebral cortex is crucialfor all syntactic capacity, Grodzinskys discoveries support his theory that thisregion is necessary for only a small component of the human language faculty. Onthis basis he provides a detailed explanation for many aphasic phenomena - includinga number of puzzling cross-linguistic aphasia differences - and uses aphasic data toevaluate competing linguistic theories.Yosef Grodzinsky is a member of thepsychology faculty at Tel Aviv University.
