Subject:Re: AUDITORY Digest - 21 Oct 2002 to 22 Oct 2002 (#2002-178)From:Douglas Creelman <creelman(at)PSYCH.UTORONTO.CA>Date:Thu, 24 Oct 2002 15:28:22 -0400I suspect the data you are looking for can be foundi in, and appropriate references dug out of, George Miller's *Language and Communication*. Published most likely in 1954, by Wiley. You might also try some of James Egan's publications from the same era.
