In brief: 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.
