Query:   Hello my colleagues,

The word ''acknowledge'' is a term which is used in the air traffic
communication. It means the manner of giving and getting back the same
information in radiophone communication between the controller and the
pilot concerning the aeroplane, like as its flight number, its
placement, its flight level and so on. In the special terminology of
the air traffic they call it ''readback'' and ''hearback'' of the the
instructions or of the clearence. I would like to ask you if you have
some references for this interesting subject, for exemple in
psychological framework, or in any. And if not, mayby your own ideas
about repeating messages between two people in general.

I would be very happy for your help
Mrs Raija Solatie
