Syntagmatic/paradigmatic/Jakobson/Deacon: In 1956, Roman Jakobson assumed that the two distinct aspects of the syntagma and paradigm correspond to two types of brain damage, namely the syntagmatic component damage of the frontal lobe and paradigmatic damage to the posterior lobe (parietal lobe). (R. Jakobson, Two aspects of language and two types of aphasic disturbances. In R. Jakobson and M. Halle; eds. Fundamentals of Language, NY: Academic Press 1956). Since then, many studies on brain damage have shown that the assumption is correct.
Paradigmatic/Deacon: are e.g. replacement relations between words. These include metaphors, anaphora and pronouns. Words that have a paradigmatic relationship to each other do not appear together in speech, except in enumerations.
Syntagmatic: is the relation between words that influence each other in speech, such as nomina, verbs, adjectives or articles._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
