The brain uses phonological information—including both segments and tones—to predict the structure of unfolding words and sentences during listening. Based on event-related potential (ERP) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings, I will present a suggested timeline and neural substrates for the processing of phoneme-based prediction. The brain activity ranges from rapid pre-activation of expected speech sounds in and around primary auditory cortex to inhibition of irrelevant morphemes, words, and syntactic structures in Broca’s area.
