Dramatic Stutter
Characters in some works, particularly anime, tend to stutter whenever even slightly surprised.

(Alice, Bob's wife, returns home early, without going shopping) Bob: A... Alice! You're early!

Can also be written as "A-Alice! You're early."

Probably happens due to Rule of Perception applied to surprise.
