This study compared the effects of three conditions of word predictability on recognition performance. Word-recognition scores were obtained for 30 normally hearing listeners using three pairs of sentence lists. Each list contained target words preceded by a variety of predictability-high (PH) and predictability-low (PL) phrases and a constant(More)
This study examined the interaction of acoustic-phonetic information with higher-level linguistic contextual information during the real-time speech perception process in child, young adult, and older adult listeners. Five age groups were studied: (a) young children ranging in age from 5 to 7 years, (b) older children aged 8 to 10 years, (c) young adults(More)
This study examined the effects of forward time gating and word length on monosyllabic isolated word-recognition performance. Fifty (60-ms) time-gated words were developed from a pre-recorded version (Auditec of St. Louis) of the Northwestern Auditory Test No. 6 (NU-6) List 1, Form A. A total of 358 time-gated items were presented monaurally at 80 db SPL,(More)
This study examined the effects of signal presentation level and word duration on time-gated isolated monosyllabic word-recognition performance. Measures of listener confidence, word identification, isolation point (IP), confidence at IP, and acceptance point were obtained from normal-hearing listeners. Subjects were presented with non-time-gated and(More)
Monaural and binaural SRT and speech discrimination scores in a sensorineural hearing-imparied sample (N: 194, aged 3--91 yrs, mn=43 yrs) indicated that while a majority of clients have neither a binaural advantage or disadvantage by these tests, an important minority (5% for SRT, 20% for discrimination) have worse binaural than better-ear scores. Binaural(More)

This investigation was designed to study real-time isolated monosyllabic word-recognition performance and the feasibility of applying time-gated NU-6 word-recognition test materials for real-time assessment of older listeners. Methods and materials developed in a previous investigation were used to obtain time-gated performance measures from 37 older(More)
