This thread is for all people with all kinds of speech impediments, their experiences and ways of dealing with them. I have a stammer, as well as rhotacism, or, how it is called here on TV Tropes, The Elmuh Fudd Syndwome. So, let's see how many of us are here!

The sin of silence when they should protest makes cowards of men.
Not a lot, apparently. I have a severe stutter.

I can't say R.
If I can't beat the crap out of you, nobody can.

I can't make "th" sounds.

Hey, gorgeous
I'm not sure if this counts as an impediment, but I'm extremely prone to spoonerisms (e.g. "You have hissed all my mystery lectures").

I average about once every several sentences.

Can I join? Though I defied my speech impediment when I was fourteen. Here is my story.

I had rhotacism, Czech style, meaning I couldn't pronounce r and ř. It's fairly common, other problems being s (when pronounced as "th") or l ("dark l").

There was always some teacher at my primary school who was designated to deal with speech impediments, but it was not very useful. Except I always felt very uneasy and sometimes even embarrassed when I was sent to practice with them. I also learned a couple of little poems with R everywhere in it. And my brothers had a cool new way of making fun of me by repeating td-td-td-td. It's indeed the first way of trying to pronounce tr-tr-tr as Czech r is an alveoar consonant like t and the sounds are produced at the same spot.

When I was fourteen, my mum decided I should try a real professional. Surprisingly my doctor was against is, telling us it's now a part of my personality. Nevertheless, I was sent to a phoniatrist who said there is no problem with speech organs and she sent me to a speech therapist. I had an appointment every week and one winter did it. People would have never guessed now. I also have a perfect French r in my repertoire of consonants. :-)

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
