Ten stutterers and ten nonstutterers, matched for sex, were tested for Masking Level Differences (MLDs) at 500 Hz, and were evaluated on the Synthetic Sentence Identification test with Ipsilateral Competing Message (SSI-ICM) under message-to-competition ratios (MCRs) of 0, -10, and -20 dB. No significant differences on the SSI-ICM task were seen between groups, but the stutterers did produce significantly (p less than .01) poorer MLDs than the nonstutterers. This may be interpreted as support… CONTINUE READING
