The purpose of this study was to develop a list of sentences for auditory training, especially speech tracking for hearingimpaired adults.
A total of 1,000 sentences which were collected from five popular novels, were recorded on a compact disk. Seventy-five hundred basic sentences were selected based on the validity test and 750 noise sentences were made by synthesizing basic sentences with 4-talker babble noise. Participants were 20 young and 20 elder people who spoke Korean as their first language.
Results showed that all 750 basic sentences scored greater than 90% of correct response rate. However, 138 noise sentences scored lower than 90% of correct response rate. In 750 noise sentences, there were significant differences in correct response rate with respect to the number of words in each sentence, age, and speaker.
These results recommend that newly developed 750 basic sentences are appropriate in speech tracking for adult auditory training. For noise sentences, however, 618 sentences are recommended for speech tracking.
Key Words: Auditory training, Speech tracking, Basic sentences, Noise sentences.
중심단어: 청능훈련· 말추적· 기본문장· 소음문장.
