Syntactic Complexity, Fluency, and Accuracy of Sentence Imitation in Adolescents.
Silverman, Stacy W.; Ratner, Nan Bernstein
Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, v40 n1 p95-106 Feb 1997
This study investigated whether syntactic complexity exerts an influence on the frequency of stuttering in the speech of seven adolescents who stuttered and seven who were normally fluent. Although normal disfluencies and errors in repetition accuracy increased as syntactic complexity increased, stuttering frequency did not appear to be affected by changes in syntactic complexity.
