Some recent treatment approaches for word-retrieval impairments in aphasia have been influenced by cognitive neuropsychological models of lexical processing (See Raymer & Rothi, 2001, for a review). The model of lexical processing depicted in Figure 1 on page 19 (after Ellis & Young, 1988) shows that word retrieval or naming is accomplished when semantics is activated to trigger the meaning for an intended word and a phonological output lexicon is activated to retrieve the phonological form or sound characteristics of the corresponding word. These semantic and phonological processes are implemented in all naming tasks and can be initiated by modality-specific input from visual object representations (e.g., object or picture naming), phonological input representations (e.g., naming to spoken definitions), or orthographic input representations (e.g., oral reading). (There are alternative non-semantic means to accomplish oral reading as well.)
