Full text of "Stamering And Cognate Defects Of Speech Vol - Ii"

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."
