Abstract [en]

Using Delayed Auditory Feedback can be used to induce Stutterlike dysfluencies, causing an individual to lose speech fluency. Little is known about the effect of speech dysfluency on working memory and phonological coding. The present study focuses on finding a method that can be used to measure these effects in otherwise fluent adults. 7 adults who normally speak fluently are subjected to Delayed Auditory Feedback during a Reading Span Task. The method proved too weak to induce speech dysfluency in a majority of participants, indicating that the phenomenon is more complex than anticipated.
