Whereas cross-linguistic work on aphasia has been well established, speech error research has been mostly carried out within single languages (except Berg, 1987, 1988). Following Dressler’s (1982) first outline of similarities and differences between speech errors and phonological paraphasias in several languages, we started a respective Italian-Austrian project (Dressier, Magno Caldognetto, and Tonelli, 1986; Dressier, Tonelli, and Magno Caldognetto, 1987).
