Abstract

Standardized confrontation naming is widely used to measure language impairment in persons with aphasia (PWAs). However, naming often does not reveal severity of language impairment in PWAs. We asked participants to generate verbs, given object picture stimuli. Phase 1 of this study investigates verb generation in 38 non-brain damaged participants (NCs) on 218 objects. Phase 2 examines verb generation performance of three PWAs, post-naming treatment on their subsets of objects (n=60). Preliminary data suggest that domain (i.e., living vs. artifact) affects agreement in NCs. The effects of training and practice on verb generation in PWAs are also discussed.
