Disfluencies in writing - are they like disfluencies in speaking

Wengelin, Åsa LU (2001) In Proceedings from DISS'01 Disfluencies in Spontaneous Speech, ISCA Tutorial and Research Workshop p.85-88
Abstract
This paper presents a study of disfluencies in written language

production. Texts from ten university students are compared to data

from people who almost never use writing, namely adult dyslexics and

to texts from people who communicate in writing under real-time

constraints every day, namely deaf whose main use of writing is text

telephone conversations. This paper investigates which types of

disfluencies occur in writing, where they occur, their frequencies and

their durations. Further, this paper investigates how different text

types and the specific characteristics of deaf and dyslexic writers

influence the distribution of disfluencies. The results are... (More)
