A Further Analysis of Fluency within Stuttered Speech This study involved an analysis of some of the characteristics of fluent speech produced by 14 adult stutterers. Measures included listener judgments of speaking rate and listener identifications of stutterers and a comparison group of nonstutterers based on selected 10-second fluent speech samples. In addition, cumulative pause time and articulation ... Research Article

This study involved an analysis of some of the characteristics of fluent speech produced by 14 adult stutterers. Measures included listener judgments of speaking rate and listener identifications of stutterers and a comparison group of nonstutterers based on selected 10-second fluent speech samples. In addition, cumulative pause time and articulation rates for the subjects were examined. Statistically, none of the measures distinguished the stutterers from the nonstutterers at the 0.05 level. These data lend support to the assumption that stuttering behavior is confined to intermittent and apparently discrete response boundaries.
