This report presents a limited theory (Auditory Interference Theory) which integrates data on fluency producing variables in terms of modified temporal aspects of auditory feedback in stuttered speech. The probable basis for stuttering is inferred to involve interference between air-conducted and bone-conducted auditory feedback. Middle ear muscle reflexes are suggested as a possible mechanism for the mediation of interference between components of auditory feedback.
