This paper describes recent experimental evidence which shows that models of spoken word recognition must incorporate both inhibition between competing lexical candidates and a sensitivity to metrical cues to lexical segmentation. A new version of the Shortlist  model incorporating the Metrical Segmentation Strategy  provides a detailed simulation of the data.
