This study was designed to determine to what extent onset times of overlapping spondaic words were controlled in the development of the Staggered Spondaic Word Test (SSW) (List EC), a measure which is used to detect central auditory dysfunction. The results showed that the SSW (List EC) was not well controlled relative to onset times. Further, the scores of 10 normal-hearing listeners who were administered the SSW were found not to suffer when the onset times were closely matched. The results were related to the effects that leading and lagging onset times have on the perception of dichotically presented stimuli.
