ABSTRACT

The limitations of handicapped people often give us a better understanding of the normal. We can also learn a great deal from the many people who suffer from aphasia, the loss of language skills resulting from damage to the brain, usually from a stroke or traumatic head injury. In the following selection, Howard Gardner, author of The Shattered Mind, The Quest for Mind, Frames of Mind, and Art, Mind, and Brain, describes the symptoms of two major kinds of aphasia. The first is Wernicke’s aphasia, whose victims speak fluent nonsense and have great difficulty both in uttering words that refer to specific objects and people and in understanding others’ speech; the second is Broca’s aphasia, whose victims can speak only slowly and imperfectly and have difficulty understanding speech in which word order, inflections, and other grammatical signals are especially important. Gardner suggests that linguists, as well as physicians and psychologists, have an important role to play in understanding aphasia, and that aphasia in turn can test linguists’ assumptions about their subject, perhaps even offering an approach to some longstanding psychological and philosophical questions about language and thought.
