The present study assessed the relationship between attention capacity and effects of chord function on phoneme monitoring. Attention capacity was measured with performance on Stroop task and choice reaction time task. The results showed a significant correlation between Stroop performance and chord function effects on phoneme monitoring, in that, participants with high Stroop performance were better at blocking the interference of chordal processing on their attention capacity. In addition, participants with high focused attentional processing capacity discriminated target syllables faster, since choice reaction time score positively correlated with average correct reaction time for both "di" and "du".
