This study examined whether bilingual English-Spanish speaking judges may be better at making disfluency judgments in Spanish than monolingual English-speaking judges. Both groups judged a Spanish-language narrative to contain a greater percentage of disfluencies than an English-language narrative by the same speaker. However, neither group identified a significantly greater percentage of disfluencies in the Spanish-language narrative. Implications for treatment and directions for further research are discussed.
