There are few: Expressive aphasia (broca's) inability to produce language; receptive aphasia - unable to speak meaningful words (some people can do both expressive and receptive aphasia); global aphasia - unable to communicate completely
you would need to clarify with neurologist or speecn therapist about specific type of aphasia.

3 major classes: There are many types of aphasia that can be grouped into three major headings: there are the motor type, the most common being broca's aphasia, the receptive type, most commonly wernicke's aphasis. The third is the dissociative or disconnection syndromes. These occur when there is an apparent interruption of association areas to the cortical language areas.
