Aphasia is a loss of language, not a loss of intellect. Aphasia can be characterized as a loss of being able to produce and understand language both verbally and written. Many people do not understand why those living with aphasia have trouble producing or understanding language. Our brains process the sounds that we hear in conversation with other people, between characters in a TV show, or from an announcement on a speaker and translate them into meaningful words. Someone with aphasia may have damage to their brain in the area responsible for comprehending speech (Wernicke’s area). In contrast, other people with aphasia may have damage to the brain in the area responsible for producing speech (Broca’s area).
Depending on where damage occurs to the brain, a person with aphasia may have difficulty with one or more aspects of language.
