Roman Jakobson on Syntagma - Dictionary of Arguments

Deacon I 304ff
Syntagmatic/paradigmatic/Jakobson/Deacon: In 1956, Roman Jakobson(1) assumed that the two distinct aspects of the syntagma and paradigm correspond to two types of brain damage, namely the syntagmatic component damage of the frontal lobe and paradigmatic damage to the posterior lobe (parietal lobe). (. Since then, many studies on brain damage have shown that the assumption is correct.
Paradigmatic/Deacon: are e.g. replacement relations between words. These include metaphors, anaphora and pronouns. Words that have a paradigmatic relationship to each other do not appear together in speech, except in enumerations.
I 306
Syntagmatic: is the relation between words that influence each other in speech, such as nomina, verbs, adjectives or articles.
