Abstract [en]

This paper reports the prevalence of disfluencies in a group of 55 (25F/30M) Swedish children with typical speech development, and within the age range 6;0 and 6;11. All children had Swedish as their mother tongue. Speech was elicited using an“event picture” which the children described in their own, spontaneously produced, words. The data were analysed with regard to sex differences and lexicalability, including size of vocabulary and wordretrieval, which was assessed using the two testsPeabody Picture Vocabulary Test and Ordracet.Results showed that girls produced significantlymore unfilled pauses, prolongations and sound repetitions, while boys produced more word repetitions. However, no correlation with lexical development was found. The results are of interest to speech pathologists who study early speech development in search for potential early predictors of speech pathologies.
