What Is Speech Discrimination?

by Neil Bauman, Ph.D.

A lady recently asked me, “What is speech discrimination? How does it relate to hearing loss?”

Hearing loss is the result of damage to your ears. As a result, a person with a hearing loss needs more volume in order to hear the sounds that people with normal hearing can hear.

In contrast, speech discrimination is a measure of how well you understand what you hear when speech is loud enough to hear comfortably.

Audiologists measure speech discrimination in percent. If your discrimination scores are 100%, you understand everything you hear. At the other end of the spectrum, 0% discrimination means you can’t understand a single word that is spoken, no matter how loud it is.

Unfortunately, speech discrimination and hearing loss generally go hand in hand. For example, the last time I had my hearing tested, my hearing loss stands at 75 dB (a severe loss). Fortunately my speech discrimination is still relatively good at 80%. This means that, on the average, I understand 4 of every 5 words that are spoken if the volume is loud enough. That fifth word, however, just sounds like so much gibberish. This is one of the reasons I don’t depend on my hearing alone, but speechread the person at the same time. As a result, I have more difficulty understanding a person on the phone because I can’t speechread them.

If you have a hearing loss and your discrimination is good (80% or higher), typically you will find hearing aids very useful. However, if your discrimination is poor (below 40%), hearing aids will just make louder gibberish and thus are basically a waste of money.

Discrimination, /dəˈskrɪməˌneɪʃən/, /dɪskrɪmɪˈneɪʃən/.

Other forms: discriminations

Discrimination means distinguishing between two or more people or things. Usually, discrimination means an unfair system that treats one group of people worse than another.

Discrimination isn't always a bad thing. You have to use discrimination to tell a good restaurant from a bad one, or a good idea from a bad one. However, this word is very tarnished by its main use these days: as a word for unfair treatment of people, based on racism, sexism, homophobia, or another prejudice. There is a huge history of discrimination in the United States.

Why cats meow at humans more than each other

This is a story that goes back thousands of years.

Originally, cats were solitary creatures. This means they preferred to live and hunt alone, rather than in groups. Most of their social behaviour was restricted to mother-kitten interactions. Outside of this relationship, cats rarely meow at each other.

However, as cats began to live alongside humans, these vocalisations took on new meanings. In many ways, when a cat meows at us, it’s as if they see us as their caregivers, much like their feline mothers.

Cats probably first encountered humans roughly 10,000 years ago , when people began establishing permanent settlements. These settlements attracted rodents, which in turn drew cats looking for prey. The less fearful and more adaptable cats thrived, benefiting from a consistent food supply. Over time, these cats developed closer bonds with humans.

Unlike dogs, which were bred by humans for specific traits, cats essentially domesticated themselves . Those that could tolerate and communicate with humans had a survival advantage, leading to a population well-suited to living alongside people.

To understand this process, we can look at Russian farmed fox experiments. Beginning in the 1950s, Soviet scientist Dmitry Belyaev and his team selectively bred silver foxes, mating those that were less fearful and aggressive toward humans.

Over generations, these foxes became more docile and friendly, developing physical traits similar to domesticated dogs, such as floppy ears and curly tails. Their vocalisations changed too, shifting from aggressive “coughs” and “snorts” to more friendly “cackles” and “pants”, reminiscent of human laughter.

These experiments demonstrated that selective breeding for tameness could lead to a range of behavioural and physical changes in animals, achieving in a few decades what would usually take thousands of years. Though less obvious than the differences between dogs and the ancestral wolf, cats have also changed since their days as African wildcats. They now have smaller brains and more varied coat colours , traits common among many domestic species.

Cats’ vocal adaptations

Like the silver foxes, cats have adapted their vocalisations, albeit over a much longer period of time. Human babies are altrical at birth, meaning they are entirely dependent on their parents. This dependency has made us particularly attuned to distress calls – ignoring them would be costly for human survival.

Ginger and white cat sit on man's lap and taps his nose

Cats have altered their vocalisations to tap into this sensitivity. A 2009 study by animal behaviour researcher Karen McComb and her team gives evidence of this adaptation. Participants in the study listened to two types of purrs. One type was recorded when cats were seeking food (solicitation purr) and another recorded when they were not (non-solicitation purr). Both cat owners and non-cat owners rated the solicitation purrs as more urgent and less pleasant.

An acoustic analysis revealed a high-pitch component in these solicitation purrs, resembling a cry. This hidden cry taps into our innate sensitivity to distress sounds, making it nearly impossible for us to ignore.

But it’s not just cats that have adapted their vocalisations: we have too. When we talk to babies, we use “motherese” , more commonly known as “baby talk”, characterised by a higher pitch, exaggerated tones and simplified language. This form of speech helps engage infants, playing a role in their language development .

We’ve extended this style of communication to our interactions with pets, known as pet-directed speech. Recent research suggests that cats respond to this form of communication. A 2022 study by animal behaviour researcher Charlotte de Mouzon and colleagues found that cats could distinguish between speech addressed to them and speech addressed to adult humans. This pattern of discrimination was particularly strong when the speech came from the cats’ owners.

Our adoption of pet-directed speech reinforces a bond that mirrors mother-kitten interactions.

Changes in vocalisations are not only seen in cat-human relationships. Compared to the ancestral wolf, dogs have expanded their barking behaviour to communicate more effectively with humans and, just as with cats, we use pet-directed speech when interacting with dogs.

Over time, cats have evolved to use vocal signals that resonate with our nurturing instincts. Paired with our use of pet-directed speech, this two-way communication highlights the unique relationship we’ve developed with our feline friends. It seems cats might be the winners in this relationship, adapting to solicit care and attention from us. Still, a lot of cat owners wouldn’t have it any other way.

English Summary

2 Minute Speech on Discrimination in English

Good morning everyone, today I am going to give a speech on discrimination. Our world has always been divided into two groups: those who are discriminated against and those who are the discriminators. Discrimination is defined as the denial of opportunity or equal rights to a particular group of people who may be differentiated based on their gender, race, or religion.

Various factors, including gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, age, education, finances, employment hierarchy, disability, etc., all contribute to discrimination in today’s society. These all result from a persistent superiority complex, ignorance, and disregard for others’ identities.

We examine all the horrifying and violent deeds that have marred people throughout history as a result of bigotry. These discriminatory practices are now acknowledged and denounced, but they are still far from being eliminated. Government should create laws to prevent it, and parents and schools should teach kids about equality. Although the battle against discrimination is lengthy and difficult, we must never give up.

In conclusion, discrimination poses a threat to both society and the victim since it outright denies that the victim has equal value to others. It is an infringement on someone’s identity. Thank you.
