ioo SYSTEMS OF TREATING STAMMERING For more advanced work, an English teacher of stammerers prescribes practice on words with vari- ously placed primary accents. His general instruc- tions for practice are as follows: "j. Let every letter as well as every syllable be distinctly heard. . . . "2. Tease out the word tease it out. "3. Let the voice run evenly along the words. "The object is not only that of clear articulation, but also that of teaching the voice to play with the word. Whitefield, so it is said, could so play with the word Mesopotamia that he could bring tears to the eyes."
