Hello,
I am student in my second year at Teacher Training College of Foreign Languages in Poland. I am working on my project on aphasia. I need some information about organization of language in brain on the basis on aphasia studies. Let’s say that when an aphasic person is asked to read ‘liberty’ from a card he/she produces ‘freedom’ as can’t find ‘liberty’ in his/her lexicon and produces a similar word with many identical semantic properties. It proves that we organize words in brain semantically (among others). That is what kind of information I need very much. Could you please provide me with some links of websites, e-books, articles etc. where I could find this? I will be highly grateful. I am looking forward to hearing from you.
Regards,
Natalia Suta

Natalia, There is considerable research regarding “organization of language in brain.” in individuals with aphasia. I would suggest that you start with an online search using terms such as “anomia”, “lexical access in aphasia”, and “word retrieval and aphasia”. These focused searches should lead you to a large body of literature. You may also run across recent studies using fMRI to study language organization. Good luck with your project.
