Summary:   DEAR LINGUISTS,

I RECENTLY POSTED A QUESTION ABOUT L2 SPEECH PERCEPTION IN NOISE. (IN
LINGUIST 11.587) DUE TO OUR LOCAL SYSTEM FAILURE WHICH LASTED FOR SOME TIME,
SOME OF THE RESPONSE MAILS WERE BOUNCED BACK TO THE SENDERS OR SIMPLY LOST.
PLEASE ACCEPT MY APOLOGIES IF YOUR NAME, EVEN IF YOU SENT ME A MESSAGE, IS
NOT INCLUDED IN THE LIST OF THOSE WHO REPLIED TO ME:

JAMES JENKINS(J3CUBE@AOL.COM)
CAROL M. JOHNSON (CAROLJ@U.ARIZONA.EDU)
RON SHEEN (RONALD_SHEEN@UQTR.UQUEBEC.CA)
MICHELLE MINNICK FOX (MINNICK@UNAGI.CIS.UPENN.EDU)
MIKAEL PARKVALL (PARKVALL@LING.SU.SE)
HERMAN LI (CLIA@SFU.CA)
EWA LATECKA (ELATECKA@PAN.UZULU.AC.ZA)
DEBRA M. HARDISON(HARDISO2@PILOT.MSU.EDU)
AMEE SHAH(AMEE7@HOTMAIL.COM)
ROBERT H.. MCALLISTER (BOB@LING.SU.SE)
I AM REALLY GRATEFUL TO EVERYONE!

FIRST THIS PHENOMENON HAS BEEN INVESTIGATED AND CONFIRMED IN SEVERAL PAPERS
AND DISSERTATIONS; CERTAINLY IT WAS NOT OUR IMAGINATION. JAMES JENKINS
SUGGESTS THAT THE PHENOMENON PRESUMABLY REFLECTS THE TENUOUS GRASP THAT L2
LISTENERS HAVE ON THE SIGNAL (I.E., THE FACT THAT THEY DO NOT HAVE FULL
ACCESS TO ALL OF THE COVARIATION [REDUNDANCY] IN THE SIGNAL THAT HELPS THE
NORMAL LISTENER WHEN LISTENING TO HIS/HER OWN LANGUAGE.) , AND THIS VIEW IS
SHARED BY OTHER PEOPLE, SUCH AS RON SHEEN AND EWA LATECKA.

THE MAIN PAPERS (AND THE PAPERS DEALING WITH RELEVANT TOPICS) WHOSE FULL
REFERENCE I MANAGED TO TRACE ARE AS FOLLOWS:

TAKATA, Y. & NABELEK, A. (1990)
