Abstract

A stimulation approach with a single subject design was used to improve spoken verb
retrieval in subject-verb sentences for an individual with nonfluent aphasia, good
repetition, and better noun than verb production. Treatment began with picture
description with verbs that could be used as nouns. The participant steadily improved
with treated verbs. Probing indicated generalization to untreated verbs and proportion of
verbs in conversation. The improvement is attributed to the individual using his better
noun naming to retrieve the verb form.
