AbstractThis study compared the attitudes toward stuttering and cluttering of more than 200 Chinese nationals living in numerous areas of China and in Moscow, Russia. Respondents filled out an online version of the Public Opinion Survey of Human Attributes–Stuttering (POSHA–S) and Public Opinion Survey of Human Attributes–Cluttering (POSHA–Cl) that were translated into Simplified Chinese. Confirming earlier research representing nine countries, young Chinese adults had less positive attitudes toward cluttering than for stuttering. Additionally, from other questions about who they knew with stuttering, cluttering, or both, respondents who identified someone with a fluency disorder had more positive attitudes for both stuttering and cluttering than those who did not identify such a person.
