Luisteren is Gokken
This article describes global listening strategies as a promising approach to perception. In a number of demonstrations it is shown that global specification of the acoustic signal and a global perceptual approach may be quite sufficient for adequate communication, depending on the nature of the subtle interplay between speaker and hearer. The author emphasizes that it is this interplay which eventually determines the relative contributions of acoustic information and linguistic expectancy to the process of communication. Listening proficiency in a foreign language is also discussed in this context.
