Abstract This study compared judgments of stuttering made by six persons who stutter (PWS) with the highly agreed upon judgments of stuttering made by eight independent listeners. Listeners’ judgments were based on at least seven of the eight judges agreeing on whether stuttering occurred or not on a given segment. Judgements of whether stuttering occurred were made immediately by the speakers as suggested by Moore and Perkins (1990). Comparisons of speakers’ judgements of stuttering to listeners’ judgements of stuttering revealed a Cohen’s Kappa of 0.276 (significant beyond the .001 level). Analysis of results shows high listener/speaker agreement on nonstuttered words (as identified by speakers), but low listener/speaker agreement on stuttered words (as identified by speakers).



La présente étude compare les jugements sur le bégaiement posés par six personnes qui bégaient elles-mêmes avec ceux sur lesquels s'entendaient largement huit auditeurs indépendants. Au moins sept des huit juges devaient être d'accord sur la présence ou l'absence de bégaiement dans un segment donné pour que l'on retienne leur jugement. À la suggestion de Moore et Perkins (1990), les locuteurs ont jugé sur-le-champ s'ils avaient bégayé ou non. Les comparaisons des avis des deux groupes révèlent une concordance Kappa de Cohen de 0,276 (largement supérieure au niveau 0,01). Une analyse des résultats indique que les auditeurs et les locuteurs s'entendent largement sur les mots qui n'ont pas été bégayés (selon ce qu'ont dit les locuteurs), mais qu'ils s'entendent peu quant aux mots qui ont été bégayés (selon ceux qu'ont identifiés les locuteurs).
