The English spelling is aphasia. The Spanish and Italian spelling is afasia and di lives in Italy.

I think CD's intention was to make it easy for English speakers to search for info about this.

Thank you. I wanted to know more about Di's condition, and thought other DC members would, too. I went with the Mayo Clinic's spelling to make it easier or others to do searches. No offense intended to Di.

I know. All I'm saying is that di's spelling is not incorrect. Also, if you search for "afasia," and your typical search language is English, at least some of the results will be in English. Technology can all but read your mind these days.

"Technology can all but read your mind" No Kidding! I did do my search using di's spelling. Automagically, Google knew to offer me links to the correct sites with the US spelling.

Casey Dog,

That's when I get muddled, and I get the spelling wrong, and then it gets worse because I get muddled and I can't talk properly. Poor OH, it does upset me when I do like to try but it's when only when things are better.

Reading the information at the Mayo Clinic site did help me to better understand your condition, something I had never heard of before. I hope you can start therapy soon. Try not to get frustrated.

Keep posting on DC. Now that we know what's going on, we can help you out if you sometimes can't get the right words.

By the way, you know two languages, maybe more. Most of us only know one language, so you are way ahead of us.
