Abstract

Identification of CV syllables was studied in a backward masking paradigm in order to examine two types of interactions observed between dichotically presented speech sounds: the feature sharing effect and the lag effect. Pairs of syllables differed in the consonant, the vowel, and their relative times of onset. Interference between the two dichotic inputs was observed primarily for pairs which contrasted on voicing. Performance on pairs that shared voicing remained excellent under all three conditions. The results suggest that the interference underlying the lag effect and the feature sharing effect for voicing occur before phonetic analysis where both auditory inputs interact.
