I remember vaguely that years ago on this list there has been mentioning of "official" definitions of terminology, be it loudness, pitch, perception, sensation, ... My question today is: Who did it? Which organization was/is trying to establish a standard terminology? Can these definitions be found in the internet? Is there "competition" (e.g. between international versus national bodies)? I would also be curious to learn which kind of procedure was employed (e.g., was there a prepublication and demand for feedback from scientists active in this field, etc.), and whether such endeavors were also extended to other subject matters beyond psychoacoustics. Also comments on the usefulness and appropriateness of these definitions are welcome. Christian
