|Philadelphia Naming Test (PNT) - 175 items
The PNT is a 175-item picture naming test developed in the Language and Aphasia Lab of MRRI (Dir., Myrna Schwartz, Ph.D.) for the psycholinguistic exploration of lexical access in nonaphasic and aphasic speakers (Roach et al., 1996).
The PNT features in numerous publications, including studies that fit aphasic naming data to the interactive two-step model of naming (Dell et al., 1997; Schwartz et al., 2006). For online access to the model fitting program click here.
