Murat Kurt, Handan Can, Sirel Karakaş.

Objective: Research and development studies of Boston Naming Test (BNT) which assesses naming ability has not been completed in Turkish samples. The main purpose of the present study is to construct a Turkish form for BNT. In line with this purpose, it is aimed to identify the items which are named consistently; to reveal the effects of age, education and sex over BNT scores in Turkish samples; to calculate norm values; to identify the item difficulty level and reliability.
Method: The present study is carried out in three steps in for adaptation, normalization and reliability. In the adaptation (n=57), Turkish names of BNT items have identified; five items which are uncertain are eliminated. 315 participants (158 women;157 men) in the age range of 20-79 are included into normalisation research. The data of normalisation are obtained from a 5 (age) x 3 (education) x 2 (sex) factorial design. Three scores of correct naming for BNT have been obtained. Spontaneous naming (SN) score, naming with semantic cue (SN+SCN) score, naming with phonetic cue (SN+SCN+PCN) score. Reliabilty study is carried out across 119 participants in the range of 20-49 year old.
Results: According to the results of MANOVA, except SN+SCN+PCN score (p=0.051), the age main effect of other two scores have been found significant (p
