in the better ear at several intensities through speech audiometer by using monosyllable Alusi’s words lists
through monitored live voice (MLV).
Results: the normal speech audiometric curves of word recognition test in this study are similar to the
normal curves obtained with previous Arabic, European and American monosyllabic word lists in addition
to no intelligibility differences between Alusi’s monosyllable word half-lists.
