Abstract

The purpose of this study was to analyze the effects of age, gender and education on semantic fluency for four living and four artifact categories. Thirty males and thirty females in two age groups matched for education level were included. Results revealed females named significantly more fruit and furniture items while males named more tools. Participants with a college degree had a significant advantage for clothing. Older males and younger females named more four-footed animals than did their gender-matched peers. There was no significant difference between living versus artifact categories overall. Implications will be discussed.
