Hey,

I've noticed something about my speech after a while... I stutter.
It's weird though, because it doesn't always happen. It seems to only happen when I start a sentence, or I come to certain words. If I'm talking to friends or myself, I'm fine, but when I'm around other people, even my dad.
It's possibly nervousness, but when I'm speaking in public or something I'm fine. So i'm quite confused.
Anyone know anything that I could do that might help improve my speech?

Eat more lemons.

I have a slight stutter also.
Best advise I ever had was if it is only slight is to ignore it. It doesnt bother others, and worst things you can do is let it damage your confidence.

Could work...


Look, are you going to waste your time, and other's for that matter, slowing down your speech?

Just eat a damn lemon already. It won't slow down your conversations and people won't lose interest in your conversations because of it.

In fact, chicks love a dude that can eat a lemon. I know, from experience.

Shout these phrases out in the order written.

"How much is the fish?"

"How much is the chips?"

"How much is the fish?"

"Does the fish have chips?"

I don't know how it will help you, but it'll be pretty damn funny.

how does eating a lemon help?

to help with speech, know what you are going to say before you say it, breathe, and speak slowly and clearly.

My life in all aspects is going fucking brilliantly, so I just thought I'd offer a cyncial scrap of wisdom, gloat a little, and then leave.

I have a slight stutter, I try not to let it bother me. My father has a stammer also, He used to really suffer from it but after speech therapy it's been improved a hell of a lot.

Bottom line A stutter isn't the worst speech impediment you can have, I really wouldn't let it bother you really. Because if you you'll just bash your confidence.
Yeah, now you're gonna die wearing that stupid little hat. How does it feel?

Help me to live.


I make custom guitar wiring harnesses and I'm pretty damn good at it!

Well, I'm no scientist, but maybe you just need the nerves to go away. And to get rid of nerves you must feel manly.

And what doesn't feel manly about eating a lemon? You conquered natures nastiest fruit! You're ready to take on the world!

Gouge your eyes out and eat a beaver. Then, when the moon is full, sacrifice a virgin to your Lord Satan and bathe in a pool blood vinegar until your smell repulses anyone that comes near. Do this, and you will stutter no more.
#25
I have the exact same problem and i dont know what you can do really. I think it generally happens when someone puts a little pressure on me....especially with older people they make me really nervous for some reason. The only thing I can think of is speech therapy, i haven't tried it but i've considered it in the past.

I disagree. I would have to say an unripe passion fruit is natures nastiest.
I drank the sour, neon green juice inside.

Threw up for 36 hours straight, couldn't sleep, and had a lovely trip the the ER.
They wouldn't even tell me what was wrong.

A lot of people....They were/are one of the most recognised bands ever....and their music actually has some relevance still!

In contribution to the thread, I have a slight stutter also. Sometimes I will be saying something and not be able to get one of the words out. It is rather annoying. I'm not sure how to get rid of it though.

You are EXTREMELY WRONG! I have played it. I own an 18W and it would be an awful stereo amp, it's way too bright, breaks up too easily and so on. Secondly, why would a guitar store sell an hifi amp.
