Abstract: The effects of phonology and orthography on auditory lexical access were examined in fluent and nonfluent aphasics and right-brain damaged patients using an auditory lexical decision task. An effect of orthography independent of brain-damage was suggested by the findings that, overall, responses were faster to words preceded by primes that were both phonologically and orthographically related to the target than to those that were unrelated and responses were slower relative to the unrelated condition to targets that were orthographically but not phonologically related to their primes. The results concerning the effect of phonology were equivocal.
