Re: Paired Comparisons

Try the following references:

Guilford, J.P.  (1954) Psychometric Methods especially Chapt. 7

Torgerson, W.S (1958) Theory and Methods of Scaling

Those should be enough to start you off.  Let me know if you have any other questions.

I am currently evaluating the use of speech synthesis for computer-
assisted language learning. I want to do some percetual tests
using the paired comparison technique. I understand the basic
technique but have not found any information on how to analyse the
results of such tests. I was wondering whether anyone could point
me to an article or text book that would explain how to do this.
