Abstract

Phonological facilitation effects during noun and verb naming were examined in groups of agrammatic and anomic aphasic individuals and healthy controls. Phonologically related vs. unrelated auditory primes were presented simultaneously with target pictures to be named while naming latencies and eye-fixations (viewing times) were measured. Controls showed reduced naming latencies and viewing times following phonologically related, compared to unrelated, primes for both nouns and verbs. Agrammatic participants showed phonological facilitation for verb, but not noun naming; whereas, anomic participants showed the opposite pattern, suggesting phonological facilitation effects interact with differential lexical deficits in aphasia.
