Sixth European Conference on Speech Communication and Technology
This study compares the VOT measurements between Persian and English stutterers. The speech samples of five adult stutterers (four males and one female) of each language were recorded during a reading task. 98 stuttering events in words beginning with plosives and 34 fluent plosives (i.e., final fluent iterations following the stuttered portions of speech) were identified in the data of both groups. The VOT measurements were obtained from both stuttered as well as fluent productions of speech for voiceless plosives /p, t, k/ and voiced plosives /b, d, J/ respectively.
