The extent to which a listener is able to recognize speech depends partly on his ability to assess its source. An experiment is described which gives a quantitative indication of the importance of two source clues in the perception of whispered initial |b| and |d|. If a precursive word is spoken by a child instead of an adult, a group of synthetic stimuli can be judged quite differently with reference to inferred child rather than adult loci.
