Jung Kim, you wrote: During the second study under stuttering and bilingualism in adults, I think that secondary characteristics would provide some clues to figure out stuttering moments if the subjects were familiarized with the criteria for judging disfluencies. Was this point also considered throughout the study? The two groups of judges may have considered concomitant behaviors. I did not ask them to document their criteria. That could be a good procedure for a future study. -BH In addition, my first language has a somewhat different system than English. If the unfamiliar language was not moderately related to English, what kinds of outcomes would you expect from the study?
