AUDITORY CLOSURE

the ability to fill in parts of words that were omitted in an auditory presentation - this usually occurs in an automatic manner and aids in comprehension. See also closure- automatic restoration effect.

AUDITORY CLOSURE: "Even though parts of a word may be inaudible, auditory closure, a natural process, means that an individual flawlessly perceives the whole word."
