A Spoken Word Count.
Jones, Lyle V.; Wepman, Joseph M.
This word count is a composite listing of the different words spoken by a selected sample of 54 English-speaking adults and the frequency with which each of the different words was used in a particular test. The stimulus situation was identical for each subject and consisted of 20 cards of the Thematic Apperception Test. Although most word counts are for written language, this spoken one was specifically undertaken to develop a base level from normal spoken language so that later a contrastive linguistic analysis of the verbal efforts of adult aphasic patients could be made. Three types of word frequency lists resulted--(1) words in the order of relative frequency of use, (2) words organized alphabetically within part-of-speech classes, and (3) words ordered alphabetically throughout.
