Broca’s Aphasia – Tono

Here is an interesting example of Broca’s aphasia.

The unfortunate man in this video is unaware that he is only saying the sound “tono” – all of his non-verbal communication is congruent with the message he is trying to say, and the submodalities of his verbal communication are also present as far as the content (“tono”) permits.

Towards the end of the video, he is able to produce words for counting.

This is not unusual, and often Broca’s aphasia patients are quite easily able to produce “pressured speech” often consisting of a swear word.
