In initial position in English, the so-called voiced stop consonants are frequently not voiced whereas the unvoiced stops are always aspirated. This suggests that aspiration is a more dominantcue than voicing in the perceptual separation of these two classes of stops. The stops after word-initial s are neither voiced nor aspirated. We would expect, then, that they would be identified with the voiced stops. This expectation is fully supported by the results of a tape-splicing experiment involving listener judgment.
