Score: _____ out of 9 (= 27 points ÷ 3) LINGUISTICS 1: ASSIGNMENT 7 Name: Michael Short TA: Ward Section: 1B 1. (4 points) Dichotic listening.

In a video clip that we say during lecture (APS reader, page 106), Joe, the subject with a “split brain”, was shown the word PHONE only to his left visual field and claimed that he didn’t see anything, yet he could draw a picture of a phone with his left hand. Then, looking at what he had drawn, with no restriction as to visual field, he said, “Oh, phone!” EXPLAIN JOE S BEHAVIOR . Joe’s behavior in this case can be accounted for due to the fact that the word was
