Abstract: This dissertation addresses the claim that grammatical class differences found among aphasic speakers can happen at word form retrieval in the context of preserved semantic system and lexical retrieval, and the claim that these grammatical class differences may actually reflect semantic factors such as imageability. Nouns and verbs matched for imageability and frequency were elicited in picture naming, auditory word-picture matching, sentence completion and immediate repetition tasks in two Malay aphasic patients with verb-noun discrepancy. Imageability seemed to be a strong predictor of naming success. The implications of the findings of this study will be discussed in light of three current models of word production.
