please don't take it amiss if I admit my guess: A narrower bandwidth at the

accuracy of hearing in general.

Then, psychoacoustic experiments that find that narrower formant bandwidth
improves intelligibility could help you revisit your theory.
I think this has already been shown many times, and our colleagues
(probably Mr. Sivaprasad himself?) could give us some references on
