When listening to speech, one may easily assign a loudness to the speech. When two speakers, or a speaker in noise, is listened to, one may also assign loudness to the noise, or to one of the speakers. However it is difficult to assign loudness to the complex (i.e. the speech + noise). Is this not a form of streaming, the fact that the speech is fused as a whole? Are the three tones, at the formants, fused in the same manner? Jont Allen
