-The most classical example of Categorical Perception is when the person ​listening to sounds can tell the difference between two speech sounds only as long as they are sure that they are able to be differentiated as two separate phonetic segments. Many studies trying to test this theory have been created and replicated. They all share the common goal of finding out whether a listener can differentiate between two phonetically different sounds and how great or small the difference can be in order for them to still be able to be differentiated. ​+The most classical example of Categorical Perception is when an individual ​listening to sounds can tell the difference between two speech sounds.  The differentiation is only possible when the individidual is aware that the two speech spounds ​are able to be differentiated as two separate phonetic segments.

 In order to discover Categorical Perception, many scientists do studies that have listeners differentiate between sounds that are being manipulated. Examples of such experiments are two experiments performed by the Department of Linguistics at Stockholm University. ​ In order to discover Categorical Perception, many scientists do studies that have listeners differentiate between sounds that are being manipulated.
