ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to examine, targetting the adult stutterer and according to the severe degree, whether there is the difference between the overall speech rate and the articulation rate or not. For this purpose, 40 adult stutterers(22:10 ~ 54:7) were selected and they were divided by severe group, moderate group and mild group according to severe degree of SSI-3 and analyzed the overall speech rate and the articulation rate through the reading task. The results were as follows. First, there was the difference in the overall speech rate among 3groups of the adult stutterer and showed the more severe group, the lower overall speech produced than other groups. Second, there was the difference in the articulation rate among 3groups of the adult stutterer and showed the articulation rate of the severe stutter group was lowest. Third, there was the difference in the overall speech rate and the articulation rate among groups of the adult stutterer and showed the higher articulation rate was produced than the overall speech rate in all of the groups. The above results showed the more severe stutter, the lower speech rate was produced because the persistent time and the frequency of the stutter activity are high and for the clear speech production, the longer speech time was needed, and this study results can be used to fundamental data for the objective evaluation and fluency improvement in afterwards the diagnosis and therapy of stutter.
