Abstract [en]

This paper reports the prevalence of disfluencies in agroup of 55 (25F/30M) Swedish children with typical speech development, and within the agerange 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 tests Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test and Ordracet. Results showed that girls produced significantly more 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 tospeech pathologists who study early speech development in search for potential early predictorsof speech pathologies.
