Each of the language samples obtained had at least 200 words; a minimum sample length of 50 words is required to compute D. 05. Language analysis Each sample was subjected to three measures of lexical diversity, each performed by CLAN (MacWhinney, 2000): D, NDW, and TTR. Because TTR is known to be sensitive to sample size variation, truncated samples of the middle 100 and 200 words were obtained, and each was subjected to the three analyses. This procedure, similar to that of Watkins and colleagues (1995), allowed for a more equitable comparison of TTR, NDW, and D.

If D is sample-size sensitive, it also should inflate the values for adults with fluent aphasia. To assess this possibility informally, D analyses were performed on split halves of each of five samples selected randomly, such that for each sample every other utterance was omitted from the analysis. The 10 half-sample D values (even utterances and odd utterances) were then compared to the 5 whole-sample D values. In theory, if D were sample-size sensitive, D values for the half samples would each fall below their respective D value for the whole sample, demonstrating that fewer words yield lower values than more words.
