Cerebral asymmetry for aspects of sentence processing
Communication Quarterly (1981)

Abstract

Ordinarily, the right ear/left hemisphere does better than the left ear/right hemisphere at tasks involving linguistic stimuli. It was reasoned that if the right ear/left hemisphere is more efficient than the left ear/right hemisphere at extracting the meaning of a sentence, then, right after the sentence is heard, information presented to the right ear may he more difficult to retrieve verbatim than information presented to the left ear
