TITLE

Semantic Aphasia Reconsidered

ABSTRACT

In 1920 Head described a language alteration that he defined as an inability to recognize simultaneously the elements within a sentence, and he called this semantic aphasia. Only a few authors referred to this aphasia during the following years (Conrad, 1932; Goldstein, 1948; Zucker, 1934). Luria (1966, 1970, 1973, 1976) took up the concept again and analyzed it extensively. With the exception of a few references to it in Western literature over the last few years (Ardila, 1981, 1984; Brown, 1972; Kertesz, 1979) and the report of three cases elaborated by Hier, Mogil, Rubin, and Komros in 1980, few authors have shown special interest in studying semantic aphasia. However, an analysis of this aphasia is of great help in the clarification of the organization of spatial concepts, the mechanisms underlying acalculia and certain types of apraxia and agnosia, the understanding of the role of the left posterior parietal region in the organization of cognitive activity and of its interhemispheric asymmetry. Probably the term itself, semantic aphasia, is not very appropriate, but neither are other terms such as transcortical or conduction aphasia, broadly used in aphasiology.
