In this article, we consider a viscoelastic wave equation of Kirchhoff type in a bounded domain with a distributed delay term present in the nonlinear internal dambing. By introducing a functional energy and suitable Lyapunov functional, under suitable assumptions, we establish a general decay result from which the exponential and polynomial decay are only special cases.
