This book is the 11th volume in a series that comprises the Benchmark Papers in Acoustics. The present volume is a collection of 39 previously published papers and one original contribution. Of the previously published papers, about half have ap

peared in the Journal of the Acoustical Society of America. The selected articles represent, in the editor's opinion, the most significant developments in the area of speech intelligibility and speaker recognition. The editor is Mones E. Hawley, chairman, in 1960, of the Committee for the Development of a Standard Method for Measurement of Monosyllabic Word Intelligibility, American National Standards Institute. The volume focuses primarily on the contributions of scientists from universities and laboratories in America. However, articles from speech scientists and engineers in seven other countries are included.
