The Modified Rhyme Hearing Test (MRHT) was presented to 28 young, normalhearing listeners as a free-response test, and written responses to the test words were obtained. These responses were compared with the foil words used in the MRHT multiple-choice answer forms. The comparisons indicated that for many of the test words only one or two of the six available response words serve as possible alternatives to the speech sounds (words) heard by the listeners; in a few cases, none of the available response words were realistic alternatives.
