coding multiple successive non-speech utterances

Dear Lise,

     It appears that our other checker (Chatter) accepts this.  So, it is just a problem with CHECK.  I will see if Leonid can remove this constraint in CHECK.  By the way,  doesn't this remind you of the subject of:

Menn, L., & MacWhinney, B. (1984). The repeated morph constraint: Toward an explanation. Language, 19, 519-541. 

I always wanted the title of that article to be "Enough is enough".  So why do we have to write &=squeals nine times?
