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. This book describes and analyzes a collection of almost 1000 examples of misperceptions from real-life conversations.
