Abstract

Categories of stimulus parameters such as word frequency, and familiarity, have been investigated in treatment of word retrieval deficit in aphasia, however none has been without disagreement as to the presence or magnitude of effect on performance. Recently, embodied semantics has also been considered. The present project reports an item analysis of stimulus parameters used in a naming study with one participant. Three parameters were examined for their contribution to successful naming performance: word class (noun vs. verb), word familiarity (high vs low) and embodiment (hand, foot or mouth). Results show equivocal support for all categories.
