Definition of the noun Agrammatism
What does Agrammatism mean as a name of something?
- The inability to form sentences by virtue of a brain disorder.
Agrammatism is a form of expressive aphasia that refers to the inability to speak in a grammatically correct fashion. People with agrammatism may have telegraphic speech, a unique speech pattern with simplified formation of sentences, akin to that found in telegraph messages. Deficits in agrammaticism are often language-specific, however—in other words, "agrammaticism" in speakers of one language may present differently from in speakers of another.
- also known as Agrammatic aphasia
