A group of 30 stutterers read a passage aloud five times. Prior to the oral reading task each subject rated, on a five-point scale, his expectation of stuttering for each word. Analysis of the data revealed a higher percentage of stuttering on words assigned high expectancy values than words assigned low expectancy values. When words were grouped according to consistency of stuttering, words stuttered less consistently had lower expectancy values than words stuttered more consistently. With respect to fluent words, however, there was no apparent relationship between assigned expectancy value and the consistency of fluency.
