Note: All sounds on this page are CBR encoded at 128 Kbps with LAME MP3 encoder and are of lower audio quality than the stimuli used in the actual experiments.  If your browser is not configured to launch an MP3 player automatically, right click on the link and choose "Save link as..." in Netscape Navigator or "Save Target As..." in Microsoft Internet Explorer to save the file to disk.  You can then play the sample with any MP3 capable media player such as the one below.  It has recently been verified that, for reasons still unknown, some versions of Netscape Navigator 4.x can sometimes save MP3 data incorrectly.  Mozilla, Opera, Netscape Navigator 6.x and Internet Explorer do not have this difficulty.
