This study examined the influence of stimulus context and audibility on sentence recognition in 60 normal-hearing children, 24 hearing-impaired children, and 20 normal-hearing adults. For both semantically correct and semantically anomalous sentences, there was a systematic age-related shift in the performance-intensity functions. Data from the hearing-impaired children showed age-related trends that were similar to those of normal-hearing children. (Contains references.) (Author/DB)
