After stroke, aphasia speech can be an acquired disorder . . . a result
in after stroke speech.    
There is difficulty in producing and sometimes
comprehending spoken and/or written language.  In other words, after
stroke survivors, may have speech problems.  Possibly, the inability to
speak all together along with being unable to read, write, or communi-
cate a thought or idea.  Listening skills can also be affected.  Aphasia
speech after a stroke can happen quite suddenly, when the  stroke
causes damage (in most people) to the left side of the brain.

It has been said that aphasia is one of the most heartbreaking
and devastating disabilities for the survivor and family members.
The stroke survivor is locked-in . . . within themselves.  It's quite
frustrating, at times . . . most times!  Imagine having a piece of tape
over your mouth, understanding what is going on around you and unable
to respond.  Of course, there are different degrees of aphasia and this
depends on the severity of the brain damage after stroke. 

Check out this article and how it explains aphasia:

EXPRESSIVE APHASIA  

There are different degrees and types of aphasia.  A person may
not be able to speak at all.  Another may only be able to say 
single words like yes, no, hi and bye.  They may say something
and mean something else, for example clock, but they mean door. 
At times, they may put a group of words together, but they have
no meaning at all.  This type of aphasia speech is called "
expressive" aphasia.

RECEPTIVE APHASIA

Then there is "receptive" aphasia.  This is the inbound communication. 
Maybe you are talking too fast for the stroke survivor . . . they
can't
comprehend
what you are saying.  And then they may "not understand at
all" . . . like learning a new language.  It can be extremely frustrating for
the survivor and the caregiver/family member.  You can be in a conversa-
tion, feeling like you're playing charades and understanding each other,
thinking 
things are going great . . . then . . . all of a sudden, there is this
barrier. It just jumps out at you, with no warning.  The original idea, which
you thought was coming across has totally gone down the tubes.  You either
start all over or just forget it.  It depends on the moment, and do you both
have a high level of tolerance at that point?  Maybe it's best to put it on the
back burner for a while.  If you are lucky, both of you . . . together . . . decide
to continue on with it.  You start over . . . and over and over again . . . if it's 
needed.  Sometimes, it needs to be put on hold!
