Reply to Pierre Divenyi: Your comments seem to reflect some kind of emotional reaction to Deutsch's results rather than a well-reasoned argument. What leads you to declare her results as in principle uninterpretable? Whenever there is a reliable pattern of individual differences, that may tell us something important about the listeners' auditory systems or their perceptual knowledge. People also differ a great deal in how well they understand speech, and much has been learned by looking for the origins of these differences in hearing acuity, language experience, and cognitive processes. --Bruno Repp
