We investigated the relationship between the utilization of prosodic information and auditory function (frequency discrimination limen and time resolution) in hearing-impaired children. The children were asked to select one syntactic ambiguity statement with a threshold (25dBSL) which has 2 semantic interpretations. The statements were prosodic tasks (pitch task and pause task) processed at where the syntactic boundary occurs due to change of prosody. As auditory function, the pure tone and broadband noise were used to measure the frequency discrimination limen and time resolution, respectively.<br> The results showed that hearing-impaired children had a tendency towards superior temporal processing as compared to frequency processing. Although there is a significant difference between utilization of prosodic information and auditory function, it is necessary to perform examinations from the perspective of individual language competence.
