Abstract

The effect of typicality within ad hoc categories on treatment of generative naming was examined in five individuals with aphasia. Ad hoc categories such as ‘things to sell at a garage sale’ do not have rigidly defining features that constitute category membership. Results revealed that training atypical examples in the category resulted in generalization to untrained typical examples with strong changes in patients P1 and P3 and smaller changes in P2 and P4. Training typical examples did not result in generalization to untrained atypical examples in P4 or P5 although changes were observed in P2. Analysis of errors reveals some explanations for the varying patterns across patients.
