Purpose: The ultimate goal of anomia treatment should be to achieve gains in exemplars trained in the therapy session as well as generalization to untrained exemplars and contexts. Phonomotor treatment (PMT) has shown such effects but has not yet been compared to a commonly used lexical/semantic based treatment (semantic feature analysis; SFA).
Methods: In a between group randomized controlled trial, 58 persons with aphasia characterized by anomia and phonological dysfunction were randomized to receive 56-60 hours of intensively delivered treatment over 6 weeks with testing pre-, post- and three-months post treatment termination.

- Spoken Word Production (Confrontation Naming) [ Time Frame: Pretreatment to 3 months following treatment termination change ]Reporting a change in percent correct scores pre-treatment versus 3-months post treatment. (0-100% scale)
- Response Latency [ Time Frame: Pretreatment to 3 months following treatment termination change ]Change in response latency of confrontation naming pre-treatment versus 3 months post treatment.
- Verbs Correctly Named [ Time Frame: Pretreatment to 3 months following treatment termination change ]Change in confrontation naming of verbs were scored for accuracy and percent correct (0% to 100%) was analyzed before versus 3 months post treatment.
