Re: vowels versus consonants

Thanks to David Klein for pointing out my error.

To recap:

Cole et al. found vowels to be more important than consonants for
understanding sentences.

We found the opposite: consonants were more important than vowels for
understanding the meaning of words (vowels were more important for
hearing talker identity).
