The topic of the graduation thesis: "Determination of Speech Deficits in Patients with Severe Speech Disorder". The work consists of an introduction, three chapters, conclusion, and bibliography. The introduction substantiates the relevance of the chosen topic, sets the goal and objectives of the study. In Chapter I "Neurolinguistics as a subdiscipline of linguistics", the concept of neurolinguistics, aphasiology as a subdiscipline of neurolinguistics, acquired speech disorders (aphasia), their types and the relationship of this field of knowledge with theoretical linguistics is considered. Chapter II "Diagnostics of aphasic disorders" is devoted to the review of western and Russian methods of speech assessment in aphasia. It is suggested that the phenomenon of severe speech deficit is insufficiently studied and requires detailed study. In addition, Chapter II discusses the procedure for developing a language test and defines the criteria for its quality. Chapter III "Speech profile of patients suffering from severe deficit due to aphasia" is devoted to describing the speech profile of patients with severe deficit based on the Russian Aphasia Test (RAT) subtests: the statistics of testing tasks are given, the types of speech errors in nominative tasks are classified, and the hypothesis of correlation between the localization of the lesion and the accuracy of nominative tasks (naming objects and naming actions) is verified. In Сonclusion, the main findings obtained as a result of the study are presented, as well as the prospects for the study are outlined. The total volume of work is 68 pages.
