Abstract

The current study aims to replicate and extend previous findings with a larger number of participants. Specifically, we asked whether training a set of verbs generalizes to production of 1) sentences containing trained verbs (The carpenter measures the lumber.), 2) sentence containing untrained semantically related verbs (The farmer weighs the apples.), 3) sentences unrelated to treatment (The dog watches the cat.), and 4) single word naming of nouns and verbs. Changes to Western Aphasia Battery-Revised (WAB-R) scores and responses to the CETI completed by communication partners (e.g., spouses of participants) were also evaluated.
