In brief: There are 3 types

Named for the brain areas that are affected, the frontal and temporal lobes, there are several different variants of this type of dementia.
Some of these types of dementia have prominent problems with words - either slowly losing the ability to speak or losing the ability to makes sense when one talks. There is an impulsive, disinhibited personality variant also.
