Thaditionally, two main types of alexia are observed: literal or parietotemporal alexia, or alexia with agraphia; and verbal or occipital alexia, or alexia without agraphia (Dejerine, 1892). Benson (1977) proposed a third type of alexia, which correlates with Broca's aphasia and has been named frontal alexia.

Nonfluent agrammatic patients show very poor comprehension of syntax. Howes (1967), who studied the relative frequency of lexical and grammatical words in different types of aphasia, found that grammatical units are less frequently found in Broca's aphasia. Grammatical units were normally found (and even sometimes found in excess) in Wernicke's aphasia. Goodglass, Quafasel, and Timberlake (1964) observed that most utterances produced by nonfluent aphasics include only one or two words, mainly nouns.
