The claim that stutterers change their customary way of speaking during chorus-reading conditions was assessed in a single subject experimental design on the speech of three stutterers. A number of pairs of speech samples of identical prose were obtained from chorus- and nonchorus-reading conditions for each stutterer. Observers judged whether the pairs were composed of samples drawn from same (chorus/chorus or nonchorus/nonchorus) or different (chorus/nonchorus) oral reading conditions. The findings aligned with those obtained in an earlier group study. They indicated that there may be changes in the speech pattern of some stutterers during chorus-reading conditions, but this change may not occur in the speech pattern of all stutterers who respond to chorus reading conditions.
