The Disfluency Hub
The Disfluency Hub

Welcome the Disfluency Hub!

Disfluencies – self-repairs and hesitations in speech - present challenges for researchers in many different fields. 


Since 1999, a series of international research workshops have brought together researchers from diverse backgrounds to present their research findings, explore common interests, identify future directions and establish new collaborations.

The workshops are known as “DiSS”, short for Disfluency in Spontaneous Speech.


One purpose of this website is to act as a hub for past and future DiSS workshops.


Previous proceedings are available via the button at the top of the page.
