The Wernicke–Lichtheim (W–L) information-processing model of language function has played a dominant role in understanding aphasic syndromes, and has stood the test of time in defining the topographical relationship between the modular domains (acoustic representations, articulatory motor representations, and concept representations) underlying spoken language function. This chapter proposes a parallel distributed processing model that uses the same general topography as the W–L model but also specifies how representations are generated in the modular domains and how knowledge is represented in the links between these domains. The model is neurally plausible, and provides a cogent explanation for a broad range of psycholinguistic phenomena in normal subjects and subjects with aphasia.
