Context Patients with pure word deafness have a profound loss of auditory comprehension and a complete impairment of repetition, yet they produce normal fluent speech, mostly without paraphasias. It could be argued that pure word deafness, like pure alexia, is not a true aphasia, since language formulation itself is not affected. From a physiopathological standpoint, both conditions reflect the inability of verbal information to reach structures capable of processing it into meaning. Inner language operations as well as exteriorization of well-formulated language remain intact.
