Abstract

Sensitivity to the combined lexical properties of word frequency and neighborhood density was evident both for words and sentences. Lexically easy stimuli were recognized with greater accuracy than lexically hard stimuli across groups, affirming the robustness of this effect and verifying that words were being organized in relation to the frequency and acoustic-phonetic properties of other words. Syntactic context facilitated word recognition for the children with normal hearing and the high-performing implant group. The three low-performing children with cochlear implants recognized words more accurately than sentences, reflecting limitations in linguistic and cognitive capacity.
