  • Recently, Hough and DeMarco [Hough MS, DeMarco S. Phonemic retrieval in anomic aphasia: a case study. J Neuroling 1996;9:85-94.] investigated the phonemic retrieval skills of an anomic aphasic woman using a deferred repetition paradigm. The retrieval of real and nonsense target words after presentation of real and nonsense distractor words were examined. Performance was influenced by the lexical nature of the target and distractor and the phonetic similarity and dissimilarity between the target and distractor words. In the present investigation, two additional adults with anomic aphasia were studied. The results revealed consistent similarities in the retrieval of certain target and distractor word pairs with a strong lexical effect. The results are discussed relative to models of retrieval. © 2000 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
