Auditory comprehension of stutterers on a competing message task
Journal of Fluency Disorders
This study investigated auditory processing in ten adult stutterers and ten nonstuttering adults using a competing message task derived from the Revised Token Test (RTT), and the RTT itself. Quantitative and qualitative (pattern analysis) measures of each group's performance were examined across and within listening conditions. Stutterers were found to perform significantly poorer than nonstutterers on the competing message task, but the qualitative performance did not differ across groups. This was interpreted to mean that stutterers process auditory verbal information less efficiently, but not differently, than nonstutterers. © 1989.
