Earwitness identification: common ground, disputed territory and uncharted areas. Broeders, A P A Forensic Linguistics, 3(1):3-13.
abstract   bibtex   
Challenges to effective speaker identification by victims & witnesses are explored. A call by the International Assoc for Forensic Phonetics to develop guidelines has prompted increased research in the area of voice lineup procedure. Use of relevant visual lineup principles & cooperation between psychologists & phoneticians is recommended. A need to examine assumptions about auditory memory is emphasized. Several practices are critically evaluated: repeated trials, blank trials, familiar vs unfamiliar voices, the use of actors, verbatim text or transcripts, & the notions of propitious heterogeneity & ecphoric similiarty. Extensive study & attention to research design are called for; the dearth of estimator-variable investigations is noted. Caution in use of earwitness evidence is stressed.
