9.2.2 Method of constant stimuli

This method is similar to that described above but has two advantages over the method of limits. The first is that it's designed to overcome bias inherent in presenting stimuli in a set order. This is done by randomising the order of presentation of stimuli. The subject therefore has no way of anticipating the intensity of the next stimulus (it could be softer or louder than the preceding one). In the table, the stimuli would be presented in a random order: for example, 13 dB SPL, 17 dB SPL,

Parts of Speech Song
This is a song about parts of speech that is sung to the tune of a famous pop rock song.  It is a non-professional production and the lighting is dark. These are some of the lyrics to the song:
Adverbs win, pronouns lose
Verbs were born to sing the blues
Oh, the sentence never ends,
It goes on and on and on and on.
Adverb clauses, being used incorrectly,
Their subjects, searching for a verb.
Colon issues, places other than your body.
Use them,
