Résumé : In each trial subjects presented monoaurally with single synthetic speech syllables. In Experiment I, when /ba/ and /ta/ specified one response, and /da/ and /ka/ another response, a right ear advantage in reaction time was observed; when /ba/ specified one response and all the other stimuli specified the other response, no ear effect was observed. Unsuccessful attempts to obtain a monoaural right ear advantage for consonants in some reaction time tasks might be due to some kind of prephonetic matching between a representation of the stimulus attended to and the presented stimulus, the output of this match providing sufficient information for response. In Experiment II, /bi/ and /bo/ specified one response and /bε/ and /bu/ the other response, but no ear effect was observed. It was concluded that the right ear advantage displayed for consonants in the corresponding condition of Experiment I was not the pure effect of a particular stimulus response mapping, but also dependent on the phonetic properties of consonants.
