Objective: Temporal resolution refers to the shortest time spent for analyzing a sound stimulus. In the present study, temporal resolution ability was compared between young, normal Persianlanguage monolingual and Turkish-Persian bilingual adults.
Method: In this descriptive-analytical study, subjects were 22 Persian–language monolinguals (10 boys, 12 girls) and 29 Turkish-Persian bilinguals (13 boys, 16 girls) with ages ranging from 18 to 25 years old. Temporal resolution ability was assessed by gap detection test in four 10-dB steps and analyzed based on language/s, sex and age factors.
Results: Gap detection thresholds (GDTs) of both groups were improved by increasing stimulus level, and a significant difference was shown between mean GDTs of the two studied groups in 10 and 20 dB (<0.05). In all cases, age and sex did not influence the test results.
Conclusion: It seems that Turkish-Persian bilingual listeners have lower temporal resolution ability in comparison with Persian–language monolinguals.
