The main brain area at play is the left temporal lobe where the seat of language is located for most people who are right-handed. This exercise requires concentration, a solid vocabulary, and good semantics which refers to aspects of meaning, as expressed in language.
In the brain, the left hemisphere is often thought of as being solely responsible for language. This comes from research studying Broca’s area and Wernicke’s area: two critical brain regions involved in the comprehension, production, and fluency of written and spoken language. However, the right hemisphere has been studied to be involved in idiomatic or figurative speech.
Using both the left and right hemispheres, we can use problem-solving skills to figure out the meaning of a word we do not know using context clues as well as fill in the blanks when a word is missing from a sentence.
This Story is Full Of Blanks! relies heavily on an individual’s ability to comprehend language. When we interact with another individual we use language comprehension.
