An experiment was performed to determine the manner in which subjects remember a series of consonant-vowel (CV) syllables. An analysis of intrusion errors during a serial recall task revealed that consonant and vowel phonemes are coded by the same distinctive features in a variety of different CV syllables. This result is thought to support the notion that a syllable is a temporal grouping of independently coded phonemes.
