The Verbal Fluency test (VF) measures the subject’s ability to generate words in a specific amount of time (usually 60 seconds) and within a certain category. Across cognitive domains, the test measures executive function, vocabulary storage and speeded mental processing. The historical roots of the VF test involve participants to write as many words as possible starting with the letter S in a specific time. Oral versions of the test may be also parts of a battery of tests like the Multilingual Aphasia examination Battery or the Delis-Kaplan Executive Functions System. The most common categories used, are the semantic and phonemic categories.
