Unscheduled Telephone Calls Yield Speech Samples
Unscheduled, 10-minute telephone calls can serve as representative speech samples during clinical trials to determine a speaker’s percentage of syllables stuttered, according to a study in the October 2013 issue of the Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research (on.asha.org/unscheduled-calls).
A team led by Mark Onslow of The University of Sydney studied the speech of nine men and one woman over a 12-hour day during different speaking activities. On that day and one week prior, each participant received an unscheduled 10-minute telephone call from a stranger. The authors compared the participants’ percent of syllables stuttered during the two calls, and also compared them to the percent of syllables stuttered during the entire day.
There were no significant differences between participants’ scores, and a strong positive correlation between percent of syllables stuttered during the entire day and during the telephone call.
