Stuttering is a type of supra-segmental structure speech disorder. Supra-segmental structure of speech is consisted of quantitative features as: flu­ency, rhythm, duration, intensity, voice power, word accentuation and melodic expression. Stut­tering is manifested as disordered fluency. Physio­lo­gical fluency is characterized by five time-di­men­­sions. First dimension is sequence. Sounds have specific sequence in words. Sounds order determines word meaning. Some sounds in reverse word- order have different meaning. Second dimension is duration. Every speech mani­festation or even a word has its own duration. Du­ration deficiency may cause problems in under­standing speech, and only because of the differen­tial sign accentuation and duration own. Third dimension is speed. Speed measures the pro­nunciation of phonetic elements and words. Too slow or too fast pronunciation influences under­standing speech (such is the case of tachyphemia). Fourth dimension is rhythm. It presents the way of speaking process. If the speech is too fast, tensed, interrupted, not equable then it is difficult for lis­tening to and even tiresome. Fifth dimension is fluency, which is realized by flowing sounds and words into sentences.
