In the current study, Turkish norms for age of acquisition, name agreement, frequency and object familiarity were obtained for all the pictures from the Snodgrass and Vanderwart (1980) cohort. Consequently, a subset of 160 pictures that were rated as familiar objects and had name agreement were selected and presented for naming. The results of a multiple regression analysis show that age of acquisition, frequency and letter length are reliable predictors of RTs in Turkish. Similar results were also reported for Spanish (Cuetos, Ellis & Alvarez, 1999). The implication of these results are discussed within the arbitrary mapping hypothesis and in relation to a robust age of acquisition effect recently reported for naming words in Turkish
