The Structure of Disfluency Behaviors in the Speech of Adult Stutterers.
Lewis, Kerry E.
Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, v34 n3 p492-99 Jun 1991
This study attempted to empirically demonstrate the validity of a twofold classification of speech disfluency in adult stutterers. Instrumentation and procedures permitting reliable identification and coding of 9 disfluency behaviors were developed and applied to monologues of 180 adult stutterers. Factor analyses supported the two-factor structure and the specific disfluency variables. (Author/DB)
