 I described the significance of the various viewpoints in analyzing language impairment. One is from the viewpoint of lesion site (contrast of the lesion site;e.g., anterior vs posterior, medial vs dorsal). Another is the viewpoint of how or where the wrong (inadequate) response comes from. The third viewpoint is the semantic category specificity of the lexicon and the input/output channel modality specificity.
