The trace deletion hypothesis and the tree-pruning hypothesis: Still valid characterizations of broca's aphasia

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 23 (1):55-64 (2000)
Abstract
I begin with a characterization of neurolinguistic theories, trying to pinpoint some general properties that an account of brain/language relations should have. I then address specific criticisms made in the commentaries regarding the syntactic theory assumed in the target article, properties of the Trace Deletion Hypothesis (TDH) and the Tree-Pruning Hyothesis (TPH), other experimental results from aphasia, and findings from functional neuroimaging. Despite the criticism, the picture of the limited role of Broca's area remains unchanged.
