Preferred Question Text
I will say a letter of the alphabet. Then I want you to give me as many words that begin with that letter as quickly as you can. For instance, if I say �B,� you might give me �bad, battle, bed�� I do not want you to use words that are proper names, such as �Boston or Bob.� Also, do not use the same word again with a different ending, such as �eat and eating.� Any questions? (Pause) Begin when I say the letter.
