The aim of this study is to provide a description of articulatory behaviour during SLDs. More precisely, our objective is to analyse articulatory movements that occur during SLDs and propose a
classification based on supraglottic articulatory gestures. Our hypothesis is that the nomenclature generally used to describe disfluencies does not reflect the articulatory behaviour.
Three categories of disfluencies have been revealed in this study: 1. Reiterations of series of movements which lead to sound(s) or syllables repetitions; 2. Global maintain of the articulatory posture with or without an acoustic output; 3. Anarchical movements with or without an acoustic output. A fourth category can be observed in our data, consisting in a combination of the above. While the first category only concerns repetitions, the two others can concern SLDs categorized as repetitions, prolongations or blocks, showing that the same articulatory pattern can be observed for the 3 types of disfluencies. #stuttering
