The observances over the linguistic behavior of bilinguals and polyglots, suffering with brain focal lesion, provide an important material for neurolinguistics. Speech dissociations are frequently met (when bilinguals with brain pathology loose fully or partially an ability to speak one language at relative preservation of ability to speak another), as well as the cases of interference between different languages (in the form of elements of one language into the speech in another language).
