  Objective: neuropsychological findings suggest that the ability to write short words do not give any hints of those words to be pronounced correctly. This is one of the brain's abilities that could be defected by brain's lesion on the basis of these findings, a scale was invented in Farsi language consisting of 50 words to assess words reading as the scale of verbal intelligence called "word Reading Scale" abbreviated as "MHK". Method: this self-made inventory has been standardized on 154 samples from the city of Shiraz (F= 76 & M=78). Raven Progressive Matrices were used as external criterion to signify the correlation between the scores of "word reading Scale" and general intelligence quotient. Also the correlation coefficient between these scales and the level of education of the subjects were calculated. Conclusion: the data indicate that the Word Reading Scale is significantly valid and it may assess general level of intelligence.
