Abstract

We are developing away from the position where all non-dysarthric, non-aphasic speech impairments are termed ‘apraxia of speech’ (AoS) and now have a more circumscribed definition (McNeil et al, in press, 1997 and 2000). However, this leaves a range of speech impairments out in the theoretical cold. We describe detailed investigations of a man with progressive speech deterioration that is neither (par)aphasic nor dysarthric, and does not share much with recent definitions/models of AoS. Clinical and theoretical characterisations of his speech impairment, like others in the literature, requires an extension to current models of speech production impairment.
