Re: streams and groups

Hi Tony and List,

I know what a stream is -- a time-varying sound or sequence of
sounds, treated by the auditory system as coming from a single
sound source.  However, I don't know what is meant by a group.
Perhaps the context  in which this term was found would be
informative.  How was it used in the original source?
