Background: Despite the consensus pointing out the importance of
cultural variables in neuropsychological assessments, empirical studies
within cross-cultural neuropsychology continue to be limited. The
Cross-Linguistic Naming Test (CLNT) is a naming test that is supposed to
have no influence from cultural variables. The aim of this paper is to
determine the psychometric properties of the CLNT and its discriminatory
validity (Experiment 1) and to determine the performance of the CLNT in
different cultures (Experiment 2). Method: Three groups followed the
CLNT in Experiment 1: dementia patients, individuals with subjective
memory complaints, and neurologically healthy volunteers. Three groups
followed the CLNT in Experiment 2: Colombians, Moroccans, and Spaniards.
Results: The results showed that the psychometric properties of the
CLNT are appropriate and that this test obtains a high specificity but a
low sensitivity. Furthermore, no differences were found in the CLNT
among the three cultural groups. Discussion: The CLNT may be appropriate
for the screening of naming impairment in Colombian, Moroccan, and
Spanish cultures. © 2014 Taylor & Francis.
