What's it like to lose language?

I recently started an online course about children's play with FutureLearn. One of the optional readings for week 1 was an interview with a practicing psychologist who had a stroke [journalofplay.com], triggering aphasia from which she has never fully recovered.

There's a lot of intriguing ideas in there, although it's a very long article and it wasn't interesting enough for me to get to the very end, but I figure a few of my regulars would enjoy it anyway.
