Abstract

Two anomic patients completed feature-based naming treatment using typical and atypical words in two different categories. One patient learned typical words but not atypical words; the other patient showed the opposite pattern of learning. No generalization to untrained words within the same category occurred. These findings argue against the use of atypical words in anomia treatment (Kiran & Thompson, 2003). Both patients demonstrated normal typicality effects during online category verification. Typicality-based differences in treatment outcomes are explained in terms of increased semantic interference for typical words, and decreased controlled selection in anterior aphasics.
