SUMMARY

This study aimed to verify the influence of word class in the speech disruptions of fluent and stuttering children, speakers of the Brazilian Portuguese. Participants of this study were 20 stuttering children (GI) and 20 fluent children (GII), 26 males and 14 females, whose ages ranged from 4.0 to 11.11 years. Speech samples were collected and the distribution of frequency of disfluency were classified by type and grammatical class. The results indicate that both groups present a higher number of speech disruptions in closed class words and for GI a small difference was observed for SLD in open class words.
