The current study undertakes an analysis of word level writing in two conduction aphasics, and attempts to explore the posited 'parallel' relationship between speech production deficits and deficits in written expression. This paper argues that such seemingly contradictory, unpredicted patterns can be parsimoniously better explained, not by the parallel hypothesis but by current cognitive-neuropsychological models of writing.
