this article caught my attention. as some of you know, I had a stuttering problem for many years, and still have nightmares and flashbacks of it, although it hasn't actually affected my speech for at least 10 years, probably longer. it's one of the main reasons I loathe the telephone, because that's the medium on which it occurred the most easily. I hated going to the post office to buy a money order because I knew I wouldn't be able to say the word -- anything starting with 'm' was particularly troublesome, so over time I just mumbled and substituted an 'n', hence 'nunny order'. I don't know how it actually got cured, if it did. just one day I looked back and realized I hadn't stuttered in a long time.
