Silverman University of Missouri-Columbia, USA Marilyn Newhoff San Diego State University, USA Background: Important to the assessment of aphasia are analyses of discourse production and, in particular, lexical diversity analyses of verbal production of adults with aphasia.

That is, if a person produces a 200–word language sample, there is a greater opportunity to produce more different words than if the person only produces a 100–word sample. Upon reflection, however, this finding might have been expected; the adults with fluent aphasia tended to produce longer samples, as well as to use more diverse vocabulary. The greater diversity of their vocabulary can be seen in all three analyses when sample length was controlled. With NDW, however, this between-groups difference is magnified by the fact that the adults with fluent aphasia also produced more language, resulting in their performance appearing even more different from those with nonfluent aphasia than it actually was.
