We measured the effects of task context on the intelligibility of utterances drawn from a corpus of air traffic control dialogue. Subjects understood more words when the utterances were presented in the form of a dialogue, with the original utterance order preserved. Subjects presented with the same utterances in randomized order understood significantly fewer words. This effect was seen with both domain experts (pilots and air traffic controllers) and domain novices.
