Auditory agnosia refers to the impairments in sound recognition despite intact hearing and written language abilities. When auditory agnosia is specific to spoken language, it can be indicated as pure word deafness (PWD), which is characterized by the isolated difficulty in understanding spoken language, despite preserved reading comprehension, recognition of nonverbal sounds, and production of written and spoken language.

Abstract

Auditory agnosia refers to the impairments in sound recognition despite intact hearing and written language abilities. When auditory agnosia is specific to spoken language, it can be indicated as pure word deafness (PWD), which is characterized by the isolated difficulty in understanding spoken language, despite preserved reading comprehension, recognition of nonverbal sounds, and production of written and spoken language.
