Drawing on two recent books, this article addresses the question: "What, properly speaking, is a pragmatic impairment?" It considers three answers, namely (a) that it involves clinical deficiency in the pragmatics module, (b) that it merely requires reduced performance on pragmatic tasks due to some medical condition, and (c) that pragmatic impairment is a deficit in specifically pragmatic abilities. Though the advantages and disadvantages of the three options are considered, no definitive conclusion is proposed.
