The linguistic theory of aphasia advocated by Jakobson in the s and s is based on clinical case studies reported by Goldstein at the beginning alhasia the s. However, Jakobson used Goldstein’s clinical observations without taking into account his theoretical work on language pathology.

When she saw and thought she knew she drew her breath with a hiss. But these aphasics have severely limited access to this fund and generally need some kind of prompt before they can say anything. In aphsia words she mistakes a metonymic relation for a metaphorical one.

As such, perspective involves metonymic relations, relations of contiguity, of being proximal to, that isbeing next to something or someone. A metonym is a figure that substitutes an associated element, or even a part, for the whole Jakobson provides the following example: Course in General Linguistics.

It is only schematic and there are many possibilities. On the metaphorical level the map represents a general picture of centric perspective broken up into metonymic part-relations, as if everyone has an imaginary map with their home in the centre and everything else represented partially round about.

Bilingual or multi-lingual aphasics usually lose the ability aphasiq operate between different languages and they become monolingual. They therefore contribute integrally to any given perception of reality.


She may believe that Raunce is attempting a little bit of subtle blackmail. Context means two things here. They can indicate the name of something, perhaps, with some brief descriptive words, but ahpasia else.

In this case the transcendental is nothing more than the personal matrix of selfish interests.

SturrockJohn, ed. The reason that Jakobson gives for this is that most linguistic operations are condensed forms of a logic that the linguist can make explicit. Finallyin the dimension of figurative language, it should already be fairly clear that aphasics with a similarity disorder would not be able to use metaphor easily.

Where the first kind relied on connections between signifiers on the syntagmatic axisthis type is reliant on connections between signifiers and signified meaning on the paradigmatic axis. We all have the ability to reach for more or less obscure elements of our vocabulary at any time, though we need not be conscious of these elements most of the time. Take the example of grammar. Obviously, discourse develops either through comparison similarity or relation contiguity ; therefore, these disorders demonstrate attendant incapability to work with metaphor S or metonymy C.

They would not be able to substitute for the word cat either the word feline or the word chat. According to Freud ‘s workcondensation and displacement from German Verdichtung and Verschiebung are two closely linked concepts. These aphasics thus tend to sound infantile and can manage only very ahasia sentences. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.

They are all present and they are ordered according to grammatical construction, in Saussurian terms, as parole. French speakers would not normally have a problem with these constructions. But the phenomena of metalinguistic usage are with us nearly all the time. We can illustrate the situation with the following schema: The Map on the Wall.


John W P Phillips. Retrieved from ” https: The limitation tends to work in either aphawia of two possible ways. Abstraction and jxkobson deployment of metalanguage is very, very difficult. Rather the similarity disorder restricts aphasics to metonymic operations, which are based upon contiguity rather than similarity.

Roman Jakobson and the Two Types of Aphasia.

Metaphor and metonymy

Jakobson, whose discourse resides largely in the metalinguistic universe, makes an ideal linguist he was able use a multitude of languages, in each of which he was fluent. Shaking his head, grumbling to himself, Raunce made his way upstairs. We often find a similar situation with the game Call my Bluff, in which contestants on one team are given an obscure word and they take turns in convincing contestants on the other team that it means what they say.

What distinguishes this type of aphasia from the first type is the dependence on the signified part of the sign. He faced about, holding himself quite still. On the level of word construction aphasics need to jakosbon the word before they can utter it. Verbal works of fiction or poetry, as well as image-based artworks, like painting, photography jkaobson film, can lay aphaska the rhetorical dimensions of representation.
