"(Bro)ca": your speech machinery is (Bro)ken.
· BROKA is wanting to speak, but articulation doesn't work, and very slow.

"Wer-nick": "were" and "nick" are both words of English language, but together they are nonsensical.
· Wernick is having good articulation, but saying words that don't make sense together.

better description for the early stage ) ..

* P-ostural instability (typical in the late stages of the disease, leading to
impaired balance and frequent falls) ..
