SUMMARY

This paper presents the results of an exploratory case study examining the oral-motor rehearsal theory of adaptation by investigating the phenomenon in bilingual people who stu:ter. Through the use of a unique methodology, speakers were asked to read the same passage in one language five times, after which the passage remained the same, but the language changed. This method held linguistic meaning constant, while changing the oral-motor movements. The results are discussed relative to future research efforts.
