Cerebral Dominance for Pitch Contrasts in Tone Language Speakers and in Musically Untrained and Trained English Speakers
Van Lancker, D.; Fromkin, V. A.
Journal of Phonetics, 6, 1, 19-23, Jan 78
American English speakers, divided into musically untrained and trained groups, show no ear advantage for pitch contrasts which are recognized by speakers of Thai, when presented in a linguistic context. The only effect of musical training is an enhancement of left ear accuracy for pitch contrast recognition. (Author/SW)
