Jakobson, 1968, pp. 60, 64) For Jakobson there was no doubt that aphasia should be understood in terms of linguistic theories, and aphasia could test the validity of linguistic theories. Jakobson (1964) also attempted to contrast Luria’s six aphasia types (described later) in terms of three linguistic dichotomies: encoding (combination, contiguity) impairments versus decoding (selection, similarity) impairments, limitation impairments versus disintegration, and sequence (syntagmatic, successivity) versus concurrence (paragdigmatic, simultaneity).

Individual sounds are not problematic, but the problems occur when the patient has to switch from one articulation to another. The individual has a problem with the production of linear schemes, which also has effects in other domains, so writing is also impaired in a similar fashion. In later stages of the condition, agrammatism emerges. In the neoclassical model, this is Broca’s aphasia. The second motor aphasia, afferent (kinesthetic) motor aphasia, is characterized by problems finding the positions of the articulators necessary for speech, and in milder forms there is confusion between similar phonemes.

Halliday (1961, 1985). At the heart of Halliday’s model is the recognition that language has a fundamental social function as well as a cognitive/referential one. Language can be conversational and function to develop, cement, and maintain relationships using different registers and styles depending on whether the relationship is with a boss, a loved one, or a friend. Paralinguistic features such as facial expression, body language, and gesture are essential components of everyday communication.
