Predictions in speech comprehension: fMRI evidence on the meter-semantic interface

  title={Predictions in speech comprehension: fMRI evidence on the meter-semantic interface},
  author={Kathrin Rothermich and Sonja A. Kotz},
When listening to speech we not only form predictions about what is coming next, but also when something is coming. For example, metric stress may be utilized to predict the next salient speech event (i.e. the next stressed syllable) and in turn facilitate speech comprehension. However, speech comprehension can also be facilitated by semantic context, that is, which content word is likely to appear next. In the current fMRI experiment we investigated (1) the brain networks that underlie metric… CONTINUE READING
