Abstract
Recent studies have shown that ability to recognize an imitated voice is

affected by topic and familiarity with the person being imitated. The signal

detection methods used in those studies give no specific information about

the distribution of non matching positive responses (false alarms) amongst

voices used as distracters (foils). This paper shows that there was a selective

listener preference for Foil 4. However, preliminary comparison of Foil 4

with the target imitated voice has not revealed conclusively any similarities

in speech features that account for listeners’ preferential selection.
