Title: Slips of the Ear: Errors in the Perception of Casual Conversation
Written By: Zinny S. Bond
Description:

Occasionally, listeners' strategies for dealing with casual speech lead them into an erroneous perception of the intended message--a slip of the ear. When such errors occur, listeners report hearing, as clearly and distinctly as any correctly perceived stretch of speech, something that does not correspond to the speaker's utterance. Slips of the Ear describes and analyzes a collection of almost 1000 examples of misperceptions from real-life conversations. Content Coverage Includes: - Complete data set of misperceptions in casual conversation - Language understanding in ordinary circumstances - Classifications and descriptions according to linguistic properties
