Abstract

The formal, clinical assessment of dysphasia encompasses at least five aspects. Depending on the circumstances, all may be given equal weight, one may be dominant to the exclusion of all the others, or any distribution of emphasis between these extremes may obtain. These aspects are the following: 1. dysphasia testing as an inventory of language input and Output modalities, 2. linguistic aspects, 3. diagnostic aims, 4. the dysphasia examination as a case study, 5. quantitative aspects.
