    The aim of the thesis was to research the attitude of adults who stutter on speech communication and to compare them to the attitude of those adults who don’t. In order to achieve it, BigCAT-SLO, a 35-item self-report test was translated, the original aim of which was to measure the speech-associated attitude of adults who stutter. BigCAT-SLO was verified by 27 adults who stutter who were, during the time of the research, in the diagnostic phase of the logopedic treatment. They represented a test group. 81 fluent adults who don’t stutter belonged in a control group. The difference in the attitude of both groups turned out to be statistically important. Furthermore, a statistically important connection between attitude on speech communication and the intensity of stuttering was determined. However, the sex and age of persons didn’t correlate significantly with the attitude. Considering the fact that most of the items of the BigCAT-SLO test turned out to be significantly discriminative and that the test was estimated at a high reliability coefficient, the BigCAT-SLO can be considered as a useful instrument for reaching decisions in the process of diagnosing as the therapy of those who stutter.
