STM span for various types of auditory and listening comprehension

Fang XU


This paper tests short-term memory (STM) span for various types of auditory input which seem to be related to LC. The result is that memory for sentences in isolation or chosen from running discourse is the best predictor of listening success.
Key words: listening comprehension; STM for sentences in context; STM for isolated sentences; STM for random words; STM for random digits

Résumé: Cet article vérifie la durée de la mémoire à court terme (MCT) pour de divers types d'entrées auditives qui semble être liée à compétence linguistique. Le résultat montre que la mémoire des phrases isolées ou choisies dans un discours en cours est le meilleur prédicteur du succès auditif.
Mots-clés : compréhension auditive; mémoire à court terme pour des pharases dans un contexte; mémoire à court terme pour des phrases isolées; mémoire à court terme pour des mots aléatoires; mémoire à court terme pour des chiffres aléatoires
