Dear List - I was sent the enclosed inquiry by a student who is investigating the effectiveness of different kinds of maskers on speech. Does anyone know of relevant work? It seems like an interesting experiment. -- DAn Ellis <dpwe(at)ee.columbia.edu> http://www.ee.columbia.edu/~dpwe/ Dept. of Elec.

Specifically, my subjects will listen to some Voice of America English news reports, each being marred with either radio static (as background noise), background speech in Farsi (as the participants' mother tongue), background speech in English (as the learner language), background speech in Spanish (as a totally unfamiliar language), or no mutilation (i. e., noise-free). Looking forward to hearing from you soon, I thank you so much again. Yours truly, M. Soleimani ------- End of Forwarded Message
