As in the review that appeared in January, 1927, I again wish to call attention to the fact that American otolaryngologists are contributing a large proportion of the work on functional testing of hearing; this is in contrast to what happened in the years prior to 1926. Another striking fact is that so little has been published in the literature of this year regarding the use of audiometers.
