Further analysis of the results of Experiments 2 and 3 from Takeuchi and Hulse's (1992) paper, "Key- distance effects in melody recognition reexamined," shows that the false-alarm rate to near-key lures was not elevated in Experiment 2 relative to Experiments 1 and 3. Thus van Egmond and PovePs ( 1994) hypothesis that the lack of a key distance effect in Experiment 2 was due to listeners interpreting near-key lures as tonal transpositions, thus producing more false alarms, is not supported.
