Disfluencies in the Analysis of Speech Data.
Naro, Anthony Julius; Scherre, Maria Marta Pereira
Language Variation and Change, v8 n1 p1-12 1996
Discusses a study of concord phenomena in spoken Brazilian Portuguese. Findings indicate the presence of disfluencies, including apparent corrections, in about 15% of the relevant tokens in the corpus of recorded speech data. It is concluded that speech is not overly laden with errors, and there is nothing in the data to mislead the language learner. (16 references) (Author/CK)
