Verbal self-monitoring is the set of cognitive processes with which the speaker checks his or her speech for accuracy. According to a theory proposed by Levelt (1983) the language perception system is involved in this task. This system would check both our overt speech and our so-called inner speech. We have formalized this theory and implemented it as a computer model. We have simulated empirically obtained distributions of the intervals between the moment of error onset, interruption, and error repair, as well as the effects of speech rate on these intervals. The model was successful in simulating these intervals, given a number of assumptions about the mechanisms of monitoring. First, interrupting and repair planning should be conceived of as two parallel and independent processes. Second, in fast speech there is a speed-up of both speech production and speech perception.
