Language disorders are serious concerns when a person sustains trauma to the brain from an accident or due to a health complication such as a stroke. Specifically, aphasia, which can threaten a person’s ability to create or receive meaningful language, can be a particularly destructive disorder to develop due to to brain damage. Without the ability to produce fluent language or comprehend another person’s speech, problems can arise between personal and business relationships.

Between the many different forms of aphasia, each distinctive in its symptoms and effects, there are two primary forms that describe the major problems associated with this disorder. With aphasia, a person is made unable to produce or recognize the code of language, making communication strained or altogether impossible. The following are major symptoms of aphasia:

  • The inability to speak fluently
  • The inability to correctly pronounce words
  • The inability to comprehend spoken language, although hearing is intact
  • The inability to read or write
  • Commonly using made-up words and names

Very generally, Broca’s aphasia is known as aphasia that makes producing language extremely difficult. On the other end of this disorder, Wernicke’s aphasia impedes a person’s ability to comprehend language, as if they did not speak the language at all.
