The effects of delayed speech feedback on errors and rate of reading in persons of different age were measured by an audiotape technique of producing side-tone ' delay. The age ranges studied were 0–8, 22–38, and 42–68. There were 18 subjects in each age range. A differential effect of the delay on the speech of the subjects of the three age ranges was found, with the older persons showing somewhat more marked disturbances of speech. The differences between age groups occurred primarily in the effects of the delay on frequency of errors and not on rate of speaking. This suggests that it was primarily the articulatory components of speech that were affected by feedback time distortion and by age.
