Abstract

We conducted a questionnaire survey of 142 people who stutter(PWS)to investigate which symptoms they perceived as eliciting more or less negative reactions. While few PWS reported that they had experienced negative reactions of listeners to the“struggle”and“avoidance”characteristics of stuttering, there were more PWS who felt that they had experienced negative reactions to the core behaviors of stuttering “repetition”and“block.”Compared to previous research that claimed“struggle”and “avoidance”characteristics create negative impressions in listeners, this study suggests that PWS and listeners have different perceptions of stuttering symptoms.
