You meet a new person, perhaps while you’re travelling in a foreign country. They introduce themselves with a name you’ve not heard before. Does it take a couple of efforts before you pronounce it correctly? Later that day you see them again – how quickly can you remember how to pronounce their name, can you say it accurately? Your Broca’s is hard at work memorizing these new sounds and incorporating them into your phonemic memory of how the sounds blend into the fluent pronunciation of the word.
The ease with which you remember how to pronounce new words in your spoken vocabulary is determined by your Broca’s capacity.
