Sentences were heard by subjects. Some phonemes were replaced by a cough noise. Subjects fill in the missing sound and are not aware of it. If the missing phoneme was ambiguous (could be more than one thing), then they use the context of a sentence to fill it in (e.g. kite or bite). Extraneous sounds can be detected if they are clicks that do not cover phonemes.
