This note discusses the explanation put forward by Zingeser and Berndt (1990) in their attempt to account for agrammatism by reference to word-level representations. These authors have suggested that agrammatism could be the expression of some particular difficulties with the lexical retrieval of verbs. The present discussion suggests an alternative explanation making reference to text-level representations, and particularly to the lexicalization of predicates.
