    Background: So that portions of the classic Miller, Heise, and Lichten (1951) study could be replicated, new recorded versions of the words and digits were made because none of the three common monosyllabic word lists (PAL PB-50, CID W-22, and NU-6) contained the 9 monosyllabic digits (1-10,...

    Background: Pure-tone, air-conduction audiograms notched at 4000 Hz have long been considered the signature configuration for noise-induced hearing loss even though there is an extensive literature that does not mesh with this simple explanation. There are many reports of notched audiograms from...

    Models of non-native speech perception suggest that native- and non-native speakers might give different weights to acoustic and linguistic cues, especially under adverse listening conditions. Here we ask whether the pattern of spatial release from masking differs between native and...
