Detailed Description:

In this study, we will first construct a Chinese Picture Naming Testing following the format of Boston Naming test. We will use the original 60 items from BNT and also choose another 100 items of objects with various frequency using the word frequency data from the Linguistic Corpus of the Academia Sinica. Colored pictures will be constructed accordingly. University students will be recruited to name the pictures and to judge the familiarity and image agreement for these pictures. Then, we will choose 60 pictures of according to the principles of 1. high image agreement 2. high naming agreement 3. including items of various familiarity and word frequency 4. double or triple phoneme words 5. including the original BNT items as possible. The 60 pictures will be arranged by their familiarity to construct the Chinese Picture Naming Test.

Then, we will recruit normal subjects of various age group and educational level to to the Naming test and to construct the preliminary norm.
