Word recognition test presented at the most comfortable loudness level can provide necessary information for diagnosing the degree of communication disability, prescribing hearing instruments and rehabilitation, planning speech therapy, and locating the site of lesion. In this study, we analyzed the 11 word lists that were developed and utilized clinically in Korea in terms of the frequency of phonemes, familiarity, properness. Although there were differences among list, compared with the routine conversational frequency the followings were found. The initial consonants and the vowels seem to included excessively with‘ㄱ’,‘ㅂ’,‘ᄉ’,‘ᄋ’ and ‘ᅡ’ and‘ᅩ’, respectively. The final consonants seem to be included excessively with‘ㄱ’,‘ㄷ’,‘ㅂ’ and the ratio of words without the final consonants were much lower. Generally, the familiarity of the 11 word lists were fair since approximately 84 % of words were rated with fist and second in commonly used words. However, meaningless words were appeared among lists which can lead into hard listening situation with misunderstanding of the words for the tests. Also, negative and unpleasant words were found among lists. Conclusively, all these factors should considered the development of the new standardized word lists in Korea.
