Stuttering
http://www.asha.org/public/speech/disorders/stuttering/
According to ASHA, "stuttering affects the fluency of speech. It begins during childhood and, in somecases, lasts throughout life. The disorder is characterized by disruptions in the production of speech sounds, also called "disfluencies." Mostpeople produce brief disfluencies from time to time. For instance, some words are repeated and others are preceded by "um" or "uh." Disfluencies are not necessarily a problem;however, they can impede communication when a person produces too many of them.

Examples of stuttering include:

  • " W- W- W- Where are you going?" (Part-word repetition: The person is having difficulty moving from the "w" in "where" to the remaining sounds in the word. On the fourth attempt, he successfully completes the word.)

  • " SSSS ave me a seat." (Sound prolongation: The person is having difficulty moving from the "s" in "save" to the remaining sounds in the word. He continues to say the "s" sound until he is able to complete the word.)

  • "I'll meet you - um um you know like - around six o'clock." (A series of interjections: The person expects to have difficulty smoothly joining the word "you" with the word "around." In response to the anticipated difficulty, he produces several interjections until he is able to say the word "around" smoothly.)"
