The Journal of Experimental Child Psychology is an excellent source of information concerning all aspects of the development of children. For, instance, we did not observe the categories whoosh, explosion, and, wind (Gaver, 1993b). Different approaches were used to collect and analyze the, descriptions of the classes. In the first step, the analysis extracted the, most significant CRVs. What We Are Listening to and How We Perceive, Studies reported here have shown the ability of listeners to, recover some properties of sound sources, although not always, accurately, indicating that context and semantic memory interact. Within each large cluster, subclusters were organized, around different physical actions across different objects. listeners to identify the sound of a moving car as a motor vehicle, a car, or a wheeled vehicle. Within and between. The, category of discrete interactions was divided into impact sounds, (simple or multiple) and rotation sounds (rotary mechanisms with, or without gears). (1977).

Cluster 1 was distant from the other two large clusters (2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7, and 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, and 13), but the general analysis, of verbalizations showed that this cluster shared a lexical field with, Cluster 7.

However, the first study presented, only a fragmented view of the subcategories of these broad cate-, gories, either because we had only a limited number of sounds or, because the origins of the sounds were too different. At a second level, the structure is based on the physical actions that, produce sounds and is indexed by different temporal patterns, (discrete and continuous interactions). The previously presented experimental studies used dif-, ferent types of instructions, and their results were examined with, different statistical and lexical analyses. Gaver (1993a, 1993b) introduced a map of everyday, sounds as a starting point to study how listeners identify environ-, mental sounds. The cluster rotation could be considered, similar to the rolling class, and the scraping class was close to the, cluster of separating with friction. Gaver (1993b) hypothesized two modes, of listening to account for this variety.
