Fifty aphasic speakers were classified into six groups, defined by differences in characteristics of their spontaneous speech. A multiple discriminant analysis was performed upon scores on the Language Modalities Test for Aphasia.

Findings further attest to the inadequacy of a conception of aphasia as a unidimensional language disorder.
