Several years ago, I read about certain cases of complete or partial language loss in patients (mostly soldiers) who had previously suffered certain brain damage.
The research included several cases, but the most interesting were the ones in which the patients suffered damage in various spots of language centres (and were unable to speak either properly or at all) but some of them could still use swear words or say Mum or Dad because these were stored in the emotional parts.
For some time now I have been searching for it but I can't fine anything of that kind.
If you have read or come across with similar cases, could you please share the link?
Thank you in advance.
