Abstract(in English) The main purpose of the present study is to reveal the procedure of increasing the vocabulary of a certain communication system named Japanese version of PIC. Six hundred and forty-seven new words were selected and the corresponding concept-related symbols were designed from the five criteria we set. Priority was given to the clinical needs in the field of communication disorders although we adopted some important words already employed in standardized tests for language and development. The application program was also introduced to retrieve, compile, and print these newly developed symbols as well as already-existing 424 symbols. Other similar programs which were developed in Sweden and the US were also discussed.
