Abstract
Recent findings suggested a relationship between inhibitory control and language production in the aspect of language treatment outcomes (Yeung, Law, & Yau, 2009). The present study aimed at developing a modified version of the classic Stroop task, a verbal inhibitory control task without the requirement of verbal output, applicable to those with language and speech production problem i.e. aphasic patients. Normative data were collected from 50 Cantonese-speaking Chinese in the classic and modified Stroop tasks and interference effects were found. The interference effects in the modified Stroop task confirmed an element of inhibition. This inhibitory-related process was proposed to be the Resistance to Distractor Interference and this highlighted its potential clinical application. In addition, the absence of a significant correlation in the interference effect size between the current modified Stroop task and the classic Stroop task was consistent with and indeed predicted by the account of different inhibitions-related functions.
