Abstract

This study examined the effect of a verb naming treatment on verb retrieval and sentence production in two Broca's aphasic individuals. The treatment approach focused on exploiting the association between a verb and its noun arguments to enhance naming. Results indicate that the treatment was effective in facilitating verb naming. As predicted, there was no generalization to control verbs, however, generalization to sentence production was demonstrated in the treatment context in one and spontaneous speech in both participants. Overall, the results confirm the hypothesis that training verbs along with its noun arguments improve not only single verb naming but also sentence production in some individuals with aphasia.
