Neurolinguists from HSE University have confirmed experimentally that for people with aphasia, it is easier to retrieve verbs describing situations with several participants (such as “someone is doing something”), although such verbs give rise to more grammar difficulties.

A common symptom of aphasia (language impairment after brain damage, mostly after stroke) is difficulty finding appropriate words and building grammatically correct sentences. In both cases, language therapy is often focused on training verb use. The verb is a part of speech that serves as a linking element in a sentence and determines its structure. For example, in the sentence “The grandmother is knitting a scarf” the verb “to knit” determines the main idea of the sentence and predicts that it should contain two verb arguments: who is knitting, and what is being knitted.
