Science of language

(See further note below: edited December 02, 2017)

According to Wikipedia article, about 70 million people worldwide aren't  still doing right even science has grown to such an extent limitless for even cell phones to listen and produce human language.  And the further questions come from this fact is certainly why a large amount of population is still suffering from stuttering among many other speech problems and, in addition, why stuttering problem is still found be on the hypothetical stages than their factual findings and rehabilitation.

I have only a little doubt yet that anatomy of articulators is in fact having to do anything with the deficiency for a cause. On the contrary, I would argue this is to be the simple manipulation of the active articulator (tongue) against passive articulator (mouth) to the constriction of the pulmonic air (the puff of air used in word production) for plosive. Apparently, which is having to do thus tongue being in almost all cases of people stuttering is plosive but without release, means stopping at some point. Accordingly, as you can see, what all needed is lowering the tongue for releasing the air voluntarily (the conscious effort to lowering the tongue and releasing the air) to a period of time until the tongue is to have somewhat settled for its natural position realized.

And, as the production of plosive consonants (P to G) and particularly the plosive consonants in velum (like G) is vulnerable, as you can see with the coloring of the science of language, this is in fact what needed to the rehabilitation, at least in most cases. Being yet a hypothesis only by looking at the landmark of speech production, I had only the liberty of asking someone likely could have known about this but I got was funny and funny like this, see:


Dear ........................

This time I am thinking of writing short post in LangLing about stuttering. I would appreciate any of your comment on this following takes:
  1. Most stuttering are causes of passive articulator in a wrong position.
  2. The exercise of lowering the tongue alone can solve more than 95% of the problem.
  3. Of those tongues that are firmly resistant for change, habitual voice accent change may cure the rest of the problem.
  4. The remaining cases might need surgery.
I haven’t read anything about this problem and rehabilitation as I wanted for some time now, but I have good hypotheses as to the cause and rehabilitation for why and how. And I have yet unknown any other issue with this.

Would you please also grant your permission here bellow as to if I may add your comment in my post about stuttering.

Yours truly,


I firmly believe   that  each of your propositions  is wrong and not supported by evidence. If you associate my name with any of the content of your email, I will pursue legal action.

However, i think my inquiry was valuable inputs to a research fellow who writes and does speeches about speech problems all over America and apparently who does published a good book  with others. Why he was angry to a normal reply is still unknown to me. Indeed i have mentioned at one point some research hypotheses for the better rather than for being overburdened with reads and quotations to issues irrelevant. 

One of the most important aspect of the stuttering problem could be visualized however is when consonants come into contact with the roof of the mouth, and particularly with velum, that is, the back of the tongue being pulled back and with slightly up in the direction of the soft palate for potential struggling to the release needed with the word production air inhaled. And accordingly why it is not the same in other consonants, vowels, and like in  /x/ is one of the ground by which the stuttering problem can be theoretically presented and accordingly solved, I would argue.

The 'release' concept is however, I see, not  so vibrant within speech therapy communities  since  the release itself  is understood as the distinctive phonetic property of a phoneme rather than a required  one, ie., that as if every plosive consonant is having the property of a 'full block' rather than a 'release block' as the required one in the production of a speech. The issue arises from this fact is  then how this could be explained if not at all this has to do with the concept of 'release' in such a way in the speech problem of stuttering has to do with it.
