Summary/Abstract: The author of this article discusses the issue of defrazeologization in dementia, it means the disruptions in realization of phrasal idioms in people with early stage Alzheimer’s dementia, which manifest in transformations of their formal structure (modifying in¬novations) and the semantic structure (semantic modifications). These phraseological innovations should be interpreted as the unconscious modifications resulting from the progressive cognitive dysfunctions of people with dementia.
