Consonant identification was measured for normal-hearing listeners using nonsense Vowel-Consonant-Vowel (VCV) stimuli embedded in a steady-state or fluctuating noise masker and presented at a fixed, global signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) yielding 50% correct identification for steady noise. Fluctuations in the masker were obtained by applying sinusoidal amplitude modulation to the noise. VCVs and noise were either left intact (unprocessed) or degraded by removing temporal fine structure (TFS) cues… CONTINUE READING
