Abstract: This study investigated left brain-damaged aphasic and right brain-damaged non-aphasic patients' ability to label synthetic speech continua differing in voice onset time (VOT) at three places of articulation. The language chosen for investigation was Thai, which exhibits 3 contrasting labial and apical stop categories (voiced, voiceless unaspirated, voiceless aspirated) and 2 contrasting velar stop categories (voiceless unaspirated, voiceless aspirated). Results of the labelling task indicated an impairment in VOT perception at all three places of articulation across clinical types of aphasia. Normal performance by the right brain-damaged patient indicated that deficits in VOT perception can be attributed to pathology specific to the language-dominant hemisphere. No relation was found between the aphasic patient's level of auditory language comprehension and his performance on the VOT perception task. It is suggested that the aphasics' impairment reflects a deficit in phonological processing at the linguistic level. © 1982.
