In progressive nonfluent aphasia, the ability to match semantically related objects is preserved, but nonfluent speech, phonemic paraphasias (word substitutions), and agrammatism
The diagnosis of PNFA required gradually progressive non-fluent spontaneous speech with at least one of the following symptoms: agrammatism
, phonemic paraphasias, or anomia.
The topics include neural plasticity and considerations for recovery in bilingual aphasia, the clinical management of anomia in bilingual speakers of Spanish and English, acquired dyslexia and dysgraphia in bilinguals across alphabetical and non-alphabetical scripts, a case study of a bi-dialectal (African-American vernacular English/standard American English) speaker with agrammatism
, and contextual models of service delivery in aphasia.
The lexical and grammatical structure of the stories they told or retold exhibited agrammatism
, inappropriate use of lexical elements, stereotyped sentence structure, and inexact use of words.
