Reverse imageability effects – better production of abstract, low-imageability words than concrete, high-imageability words – can occur, although rarely. The production of spoken words is characterised by anomia with both failures and delays in word retrieval. Semantic errors are produced in both spoken and written naming. When cued by a phonemic cue for a semantic associate (phonemic miscueing), clients with naming disorders arising from a semantic impairment may produce a semantic associate (Howard & OrchardLisle, 1984).

Error types The second source of available evidence is the nature of the errors made in spoken production. These can be classified, for example, into the following categories: 1 2 3 A delay or failure to retrieve a word. g. NAIL → ‘screw’.
