I am not able to speak properly I stammer especially when I am nervous or tensed. I can speak fluently with parents but am not able to speak in front of anybody else. It occurs more with some alphabets like m, n, p, j, k etc. What should I do to speak properly?

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Stammering is" speaking with sudden involuntary pauses and a tendency to repeat the initial letters of words" or" say something with difficulty, repeating the initial letters of words and with sudden involuntary pauses" stammering could be due to two reasons. First reason is vocal cord misalignment. Second is psychological performance anxiety. First of all you should consult an ent specialist and evaluate your vocal chords. If there is problem, ent specialist will be able to correct it. If there is no problem with your vocal chords, you should consult a psychologist for stammer therapy. Take care.

Voice rest is need be cautious with medications. Many can directly or indirectly affect your voice. Avoid habitual and frequent throat clearing and excessive coughing. Avoid speaking in noisy environments and open spaces such as playgrounds. Avoid intake of spicy, oily and fast food. Avoid caffeinated beverages like coffee, tea and colas. Do not smoke & avoid alcohol intake. Do not sing or mimic natural sounds or animal cries to train your voice. Consult a speech-language pathologist.

Dear Lybrate user. In many of the cases Stammering has two important reasons. Vocal chord misalignment or other problems are the primary reason. For this vocal chord complaint, you should consult an ENT specialist and get it corrected. Second reason is purely psychological. Stammer therapy can help you in psychological reasons. Take care.

How to cure stammering? I do not have speech therapist, psychologist in my vicinity. Suggest some proven ways to cure stammering?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You have a problem with fear for sure, which may have roots in your past. The fear has to do with people and more so if they are people in authority. If you deal with that fear, then a lot of your stammering will stop. Talk to a counselor and sort that out. There will still be a residue affect left because of pure habit. This can be resolved by some exercises, which should begin with real earnest right away. Practice speaking aloud in a closed room, but this time, choose words for which your stammer is most. Also, practice singing sentences but ending the last word as a statement that is read. Next time end with two words stated, then three words etc. The lip exercise: with tight pressure press and roll the tip of your tongue against the edge of your lips, clockwise first and then anticlockwise, as many times as you possibly can. Purse your lips into an ‘O’ and withdraw it back stretching it like when you say an ‘E’, several times a day. Drop your lower jaw and flip it left to right and right to left, as many times as you can to loosen it. Practice making a resonating sound by increasing and decreasing the volume within the same breath. Sing the vowels A, E, I, O, U stretching each vowel as much as you can.

When I write, I sound intelligent, and can get my Point across effectively. However, every time I Open my mouth to speak, I sound like a total Idiot. Everything always comes out wrong; Nothing ever comes out right. I can never get Across what I am trying to convey. People never" get the point" of what I am saying; it's very Frustrating. I have a lot of intelligent thoughts And good ideas, but if I try to express them Verbally, it always sounds really garbled and Disjointed. I am eloquent when I write, but When I talk, I stammer and fumble and look like a Fool. What is the reason for this?

Dear sir expression of thoughts can be either emotional or conceptual among the conceptual expression of thoughts, there are two variants 1. Through writing 2. Through speaking so, there are three neural circuits in brain that express that you feel and the three neural circuits are in various stages of development in various individuals so some are good speakers but poor writers some are good writers but poor speakers some are good writers as well as good speakers some are neither:) (same way, some people would like to read a mail to know the response. Some prefer a phone call. Why? it is because just like how you have various pathways for expression of thought, there are various input pathways too. Those whose neural circuits for symbols is stronger prefer a sms or mail. Those whose neural circuits for sounds is stronger prefer a phone call) now coming back to your problem your neural circuits that deals with speaking (from brocas area) is" relatively weaker" than your intellect and the neural circuits that deals with writing which are very very strong. So you are finding it difficult to talk but, please wait your speech pathway is not really weak. It appears to be relatively weaker because your thinking and writing circuits are extremely strong. In other words, you think faster, your hands are able to cope up with that speed, but your mouth is not yet coping up, and hence you stammer. The good news: a person with good intellect and good writing skills (as evidenced from your question) can easily develop his speech too. All it needs is self confidence [which I have given here ;) ] and practice [which you have to do] start practising today. Sorry, now itself:):):) best wishes for a successful career.

Dr. I am stammering too much. Does that stammering have treatment or operation. I really worried about it so much.

M.S. Counselling and Psychotherapy
Psychologist, Bangalore
You can consult a speech therapist for stammering. You need to observe, if you stammering is more in particular situations or do you stammer more while you are with some specific people. If it is so, then the stammering is more because of lack of confidence and because of fear of being judged by others. If the stammer was there even in the childhood, then may be you were scared of some people and there might have been performance anxiety and lack of self esteem. You may consult a counsellor who can help you in building up your self confidence. A systematic therapy will be of help. All the best.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
It can be made lesser only and only by speech therapy. So you should take the help of a speech therapist. Also, i'd suggest you to visit a psychologist as confidence plays a great role in dealing with this problem. I'd suggest you to speak very slowly, word by word. People may make fun of this but believe me, slowly you'll get better at it.

I have stammering problem. Childhood time I difficulty to speak with others I am also taking speech therapy. Last 1 years But Therapy not effective. Pl give me solution and advise for I continue speech therapy? N recovery is possible.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Stammering is typically recognised by a tense struggle to get words out. This makes it different from the normal non-fluency we all experience which includes hesitations and repetitions. Commonly it involves repeating or prolonging sounds or words, or getting stuck without any sound (silent blocking). Sometimes people put in extra sounds or words. Often people lose eye contact. Some people who stammer talk their way round difficult words so that you may not realise they stammer at all. This avoidance of words, and avoidance of speaking in some or many situations, is an important aspect of stammering. Stammering varies tremendously from person to person and is highly variable for the person who stammers who may be fluent one minute and struggling to speak the next. Get an mri brain and eeg with a psychiatrist evaluation.

My age is 23 and I am suffering from speech problems. I stammer while pronouncing words which begins with a, i, e, f,s, k,m, n and so on. And whenever I become nervous I need to stop or slow myself it really becomes quite embarrassing for me. Its only because of few specific letters I can not speak without stammering I need some suggestions on how to get rid of this problem.

I am having a voice problem the words spoke by me could not be understandable to the another man to whom I answered it is because I have paralysis 3 years back which I recovered but the voice is not proper.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Breathe deeply and exhale on a hisssssssing sound. Repeat 10 times. Proper breathing is the foundation for a healthy voice AND control over nervous energy that can make the voice quiver. Say “Mm-mmm (as in yummy) Mmm-hmm (like yes) ” Repeat 5 times. This develops mask resonance, which creates a clean and vibrant sound by creating a clean approximation of the cords and a resonance that will sound great and project easily. Say “Mm-mmm. Mmm-hmm.” up and down your vocal range, from low to middle to high and back again, 10 times.
