This study analyzed 36 digitized spondaic words for speech reception threshold in an attempt to create a more homogeneous set of spondaic words for research on determining hearing loss for speech. None of the acoustic properties were correlated with word thresholds. When the threshold of each word was adjusted to the mean threshold, dispersion was greatly reduced. (DB)
