A type of aphasia in which the person has difficulty generating the words used to label things in the world (not a deficit in knowledge)
the arrangement of words as elements in a sentence to show their relationship to one another - sentence structure

Syntax used can be primed by that used in previous sentences
a condition in which patients cannot read words, even though other aspects of language are normal
