Production approaches to stuttering

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


It is proposed that a usage-based approach to language learning might help explain why learners begin to stutter around the age of three. However, it is not clear how this proposal is explanatory, and why phonologically grounded proposals are dismissed out of hand. In fact, prosodic structures include higher-level language production units such as phonological phrases and phonological utterances, making these ideal units to investigate ina developmental model of language production that could apply to adult stuttering as well.
