Sammanfattning: Semantic feature analysis (SFA) is a treatment technique used foraphasic word finding difficulties after stroke. The method has earlier beenevaluated with positive outcome regarding words that have been trainedduring intervention while more varied results have been presented regardinguntrained words. The aim of this study was therefore to evaluate the effectsof the method on naming in untrained nouns and verbs, in both confrontationnaming and in discourse. The present study is the first to evaluate SFA withSwedish-speaking persons. A single-subject design was used. Three personswith word finding difficulties following different type, and severity ofaphasia, participated in the study. No improvement was observed inconfrontation naming of untrained words for any of the participants. Modestchanges in naming were observed in discourse production. One conclusionof this study was that intervention with SFA should be preceded by aninvestigation of the patients´ linguistic ability, to find out whether they arelikely to benefit from SFA treatment or not.
