Analyzes tests on the ability of individuals with left-hemisphere damage (LHD), right-hemisphere damage and non-brain damaged participants to identify phonemic and emphatic stress contrasts. Impairment of the ability of patients with LHD and aphasia to make phonemic stress judgments; Interaction of perceptual deficits and higher level linguistic and/or cognitive deficits.

    The levels-of-processing approach to speech processing (cf. Kolinsky, 1998) distinguishes three levels, from bottom to top: perception, recognition (which involves activation of stored knowledge) and formal explicit analysis or comparison (which belongs to metalinguistic ability), and assumes...
