Abstract : An evaluation of the effect of normal speech rate on the relationship between the rate of repeated phrases and the rate of the original phrases was undertaken. Twenty-five subjects were divided into five equal groups on the basis of time taken to read a list of meaningful phrases and sentences. Five lists of phrases, comparable in all respects save rate, were presented to each subject, who was instructed to repeat each phrase in a natural manner. Analysis of the durations of the repeated phrases indicated that original phrase rate influenced the response rates of subjects in the three faster speaking groups in a more uniform way than it influenced the less fluent subjects; there was a definite relationship between rates of original and repeated phrases for the fast-speaking groups and for the slow-speaking groups.
