Abstract

Syndromes of dysphasia may vary from the forms described in the preceding sections, or certain aspects of dysphasic syndromes may appear more prominently than others, depending on associated clinical conditions, language background of the patient, history of left-handedness, lesion localization, or individual differences. In this section we consider clinical features of some of these special forms of dysphasia.
