Effects of Age and Hearing Sensitivity on the Use of Prosodic Information in Spoken Word Recognition.
Wingfield, Arthur; Lindfield, Kimberly C.; Goodglass, Harold
Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, v43 n4 p915-25 Aug 2000
In this study, younger and older adults heard either just word onsets, word onsets followed by white noise indicating word duration, or word onsets followed by signals indicating word prosody. Older adults required longer stimulus durations for word recognition with hearing sensitivity a significant factor. Word recognition was facilitated equally by word prosody knowledge by both groups.
