Disfluency in Spontaneous Speech
This presentation reviews work on types of disfluency in the spontaneous speech of fluent speakers and speakers who stutter. Examination is made of factors that determine where disfluencies are located. It is concluded that the phonological, or prosodic, word provides a good basis for explaining the distribution of different types of disfluency in spontaneous speech.
