This project was the Master thesis of Zahra Bemani. Naming problem is one of the main symptoms in aphasia. Naming in normal individuals takes place in just a second, but the person with aphasia (PWA) needs more time for retrieving so their naming reaction time is longer. On the other hand, naming can be affected by several psycholinguistic variables in the manner of accuracy and reaction time. The aim of this study was investigated some psycholinguistic variables on the accuracy and reaction time in PWA.
