Repetition or Correction

Symbol +/.../+

There's a tendency in spontanous speech to stutter and also to correct such disfluencies. The label +/.../+ is used when the speaker repeats a word or a phrase or when he substitutes a new word for the one he started with, but continues with the same word class.
