Abstract

This paper presents evidence of an inverse frequency effect in jargon aphasia. The subject (JP) showed a pre-disposition for low frequency word production on a range of tasks, including picture naming, sentence completion and naming in categories. Her real word errors were also striking, in that these tended to be lower in frequency than the target. Reading data suggestedthat the inverse frequency effect was present only when production was semantically mediated. It was therefore hypothesised that the effect was at least partly due to the semantic characteristics of low frequency items. Somesupport for this was obtained from a comprehension task showing that JP's understanding of low frequency terms, which she often produced as errors, was superior to her understanding of high frequency terms. Possible explanations for these findings are considered.
