Reverse imageability effects with better understanding of abstract, low-imageability words than concrete, highimageability words can occur, though rarely so.

Written word retrieval is intact. Articulation/speech Articulation difficulties result in dysarthria. Assessments of spoken word production Preclude: Preclude deficits of motor speech and visual object recognition through: • • Tests for motor speech disorders to assess dysarthria and dyspraxia Tests for object recognition (see Chapter 8) General notes on assessment As word-retrieval deficits are usually evident in spontaneous speech, observation of spontaneous output will provide an important first opportunity to observe presenting patterns.

Word types In assessing spoken production, three types of word contrasts are useful: 1 2 3 High- and low-imageability words. High- and low-frequency words. Words that vary in number of phonemes/syllables. Analysis of performance on these three variables allows conclusions to be drawn about three effects: (a) An imageability effect.
