Stammering: Its Correction Through the Re-education of the Speech Function.
Directed to the stammerer, the text provides a course of correction based on normal speaking principles. Speech re-education is described in terms of the following: the attitude needed; faults of breathing, vocalization, and articulation; discovery of the natural voice; pace; breathing; volume and resonance; mental conception; and corrective practice. Discussion of the problem of conversing treats normal influences, the movement from sound making difficulties, and methodical correction. Supplementary considerations include conscious control, the vocal impulse, the voice, the fear factor, change of the speaking manner, the relationship between speech and song, and common conditions in stammering. Also considered are common factors in correction, the nature and genesis of stammering, the experiences of a stammerer, and the psychological approach to the problem. (JK)
