intervocalic consonants as a function of both non-native phonological competence and masker type.
Performance in the high condition was better with a synchronous than with an asynchronous masker.
Results showed that the CPH tone was the least effective forward masker, even tho it was the loudest.
In the high-frequency condition, the synchronous masker had only a small effect, but the asynchronous masker reduced performance dramatically.
