The effects of the verbally presented stimuli wrong, right, and tree on the frequency of disfluencies during oral reading for 14 stutterers and 14 nonstutterers were studied. No differences were found between the three stimulus words with respect to their effect on the disfluency rate of either subject group. A decrease in the disfluency rate of the stutterers was observed during the presentation of all three stimulus words.
