So, what is aphasia? Well, the formal answer would be ”an acquired language impairment caused by brain injury such as stroke”, but does that makes things any clearer?
TED-ed has made a few lessons on the topic, and they are worth watching! Start with these two:

In my project, I focus on the identity issues caused by the aphasia. This aspect is not really mentioned in these videos, but I guess that only makes my project even more important.
