Re: repetition effects for speech-in-noise


Steve Goldinger (JEPLMC 1996) studied repetition using a task of word identification in noise (See also Church & Schacter (JEPLMC 1994).

Anectodally, we observed that people once exposed to very fast speech seem to retain an advange  days or months later (Mehler et al.,  Understanding compressed sentences: the role of rhythm and meaning. Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences, 682:272-282, 1993. No sure we reported it.).

Can anyone refer me to studies of the effects of repeating items when
testing, for example, identification of words in noise or other
degradations? I myself have seen someone do much better with
noise-vocoded sentences because he had been in a study using the same
material more than a year previously! There is a large, somewhat related
literature concerning semantic and repetition priming, but that is not
quite the task I am interested in.
