The left hemisphere of the brain is well known to support crucial aspects of language such as segmental phonology, syntax, and morphology, as well as language meaning.  The right hemisphere is traditionally dedicated to language in context, such as pragmatics, prosody, and meaning.  This case study addresses the role the right hemisphere plays when it is forced to support functions strongly lateralized to the left hemisphere in the intact brain.
