The Tono Tono man - brain damage makes him turn all speech into the word "Tono" unless he's counting

Man with brain injury thinks he is talking normally, except he only says tono. Unless he's counting.
It's not only Broca's Aphasia, which destroys the ability to form language into spoken words, but it must be something impaired in the way his brain assigns thoughts and internal grammar/statements/vocabulary into muscle-produced syllables.

It obviously seems like he knows he's talking about something in detail, it's just that the last stage of language production - the formation of mouthed words - is impaired. The counting thing just boggles my mind.
