Object-Naming Latency in Stuttering and Nonstuttering Children Twenty nonstuttering and eight stuttering male children provided naming responses to 34 pictures of simple objects, selected to represent a range from highest to lowest frequency of occurrence in the English language. The time taken to name objects was found to be negatively correlated with the logarithm10 of the frequency ... Research Article

Twenty nonstuttering and eight stuttering male children provided naming responses to 34 pictures of simple objects, selected to represent a range from highest to lowest frequency of occurrence in the English language. The time taken to name objects was found to be negatively correlated with the logarithm10 of the frequency of occurrence of the names in the language. No evidence was found to indicate that stuttering children have longer object-naming latencies than nonstuttering children.
