Fourteen young adult male stutterers read two lists of words, one list consisting of one-syllable word pairs, the second list consisting of two-syllable words phonetically equivalent to word pairs in the first list.

Results show a significantly higher frequency of stuttering on two-syllable words. The findings are related to other data which bear on the relationship of stuttering to word length, grammatical category, context, and suprasegmental features of speech.
