Kozhevnikov-Wernicke aphasia is specific type of Wernicke's aphasia. The main symptoms of the aphasia comprise loss of comprehension of spoken language, loss of ability to read (silently) and write, and distortion of articulate speech. Although the affected persons may speak fluently with a natural rhythm the result may have no understandable meaning nor syntax although word memory is preserved and words are often chosen correctly.
