The question of whether treatment gains in picture naming generalise to conversation remains relatively unexplored. Several difficulties surround data collection and analysis. A quantitative measure of word retrieval in aphasia is presented along with relevant details relating to the reliability of the measure, and the relationship between word retrieval in picture naming and noun retrieval in conversation. We discuss the clinical application of the measure and its applicability outside the field of aphasia.
