Definition


Transcortical motor or dynamic aphasia is a form of aphasia. This language disorder represents a reduction of the lexical field and sentences become very short; the production of elaborate sentences becomes difficult. The patient is however capable of naming and repeating words normally. Syntax is reduced to the strict minimum and vocabulary is poor. A comprehension disorder can sometimes appear simultaneously.
