We present a disfluency model derived from analysing transcriptions from the AMI meeting corpus. Ourmodel goes beyond previous work in that it discriminates several classes that are elsewhere regarded the same. Also, we introduce completely new classes of naturally occurring phenomena. Our annotations show significant occurrences of these new classes. An evaluation of annotations from four different annotators reveals a high agreement,  = 0.92 - 0.93,AC1 = 0.93.
