Generally, aphasia is a term used to describe a communications disorder wherein the patient is unable to speak clearly, or speaks only haltingly. There are several types, in large part because the condition can arise from disorders in various parts of the brain. Broca's aphasia was so named because Broca demonstrated that this common type of aphasia arose from a disorder in the left posterior frontal lobe of the brain.
