Thomas, I would suggest that you post this item on the McGill "auditory" list. There are lots of people on that list that can give you suggestions and literature. Also look (dont have too high an expectation however) at as there are many references that relate to what you are interested in. If you get some action at the auditory list, and the discussion gets too thick, have these detailed discussions come to the "Neural" list (neural(at) There is also a new speech list, but I haven't seen any traffic on it either. It is at: Finally, I have a bit of experience in the areas of your interest, and we should keep in touch. Good Luck, Jont PS: I am posting my comments, with yours attached, to the McGill auditory list, and to the speech list, as I am a member of both (normally one must join to post).
