Atypical Syntactic Processing in Individuals Who Stutter: Evidence from Event-Related Brain Potentials and Behavioral Measures.
Cuadrado, Elizabeth M.; Weber-Fox, Christine M.
Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, v46 n4 p960-76 Aug 2003
Syntactic processing was explored in nine individuals who stutter (IWS). Grammaticality judgments and event-related brain potentials (ERPs) were obtained while participants read sentences, half containing verb-agreement violations, via computer or paper. Judgment accuracy of IWS for the online task, but not offline, was lower, especially for more syntactically complex sentences. Results suggest problems in underlying language processes in IWS.
