In a previous paper, Lotto et al. [J. Acoust. Soc. Am. 103, 3648-3655 (1998)] claimed that experiments investigating a perceptual magnet effect (PME) failed to demonstrate a novel effect of goodness judgments on speech sound discrimination due to a confound in the procedure. New analyses of these data and a review of the recent literature fail once again to support the existence of PME. (C) 2000 Acoustical Society of America.
