Broca's and Wernicke's Aphasia

Broca's Aphasia:
Individuals with Broca's aphasia frequently speak short, meaningful phrases that are produced with great effort. Broca's aphasia is thus characterized as a nonfluent aphasia.
Those who have Broca's aphasia have mild difficulty with auditory comprehension.

Wernicke's Aphasia:
Individuals with Wernicke's aphasia may speak in long sentences that have no meaning, add unnecessary words, and even create new "words" (neologisms).
Their auditory comprehension is defective.
