Disfluency Clusters of Children Who Stutter: Relation of Stutterings to Self-Repairs.
LaSalle, Lisa R.; Conture, Edward G.
Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, v38 n5 p965-77 Oct 1995
This study examined speech disfluency clusters in the speech of 60 3- to 6-year-old children, half of whom stuttered. Results indicated that the children who stuttered produced significantly more "stuttering-stuttering" clusters and significantly more "stuttering-repair" clusters, whereas nonstutterers never produced "stuttering-stuttering" clusters and were more likely to produce "repair-repair" than "stuttering-repair" clusters.
