ABSTRACT
The topic of this paper is a linguistic analysis followed by a psycholinguistic interpretation of data from language production of an aphasic patient. The most prominent accompanying symptom identified in this patient was severely disturbed speech - aphasia, with language symptoms, which, under traditional classifications, are characteristic for agrammatism. The type of aphasia observed in the patient was very difficult to classify on the basis of standard classification schemes, but the final diagnosis was a mixed form of aphasia. The focus of this article is a description and discussion of a selection of agrammatical phenomena occurring at different linguistic levels (syntax, morphology, lexicon). Furthermore, it will also consider two specific communication skills, i.e. naming (in the mother tongue and a foreign language) and repetition. To illustrate the patient's speech, numerous examples from the transcripts will be provided and discussed. In addition, attention will be paid to the patient's reflection on his own experience with the production of spoken as well as written speech. The paper will discuss agrammatical phenomena found in the data in relation to two hypotheses connected to the current subject: 1. the selective syntactic deficit hypothesis (Pollock, 1989; Grodzinsky, 1995; 2000), and 2. the disruption of language non-specific processor hypothesis (Dick et al., 2001). In conclusion, the analyzed data will be briefly interpreted in the context of mental processes in language production within Levelt's (1989) language production model and in the context of mental representation of meaning.
