10 stutterers and 10 nonstutterers' abilities to perceive accurately prosodic information (stress, contrast, and emotion), linguistic stimuli staggered in time and nonspeech stimuli (tone bursts) were examined. Analysis indicated significant differences between the two groups on the Staggered Spondaic Word Test and the stress subtest of the Sentence Disambiguation Task. In addition, 7 of the 10 stuttering subjects performed more poorly on the three measures than nonstuttering subjects.
