Language disorder where the patient refers to an object, event or person, describing its characteristics instead of using its name………..
Be careful when you beat around the bush, so folks don’t think your language impaired!

Whoops—no one hear hasn’t replied in 2 months!!!! Why do people avoid confronting what goes against the methods???February 5, 2021 at 8:40 am #28864GáborParticipant
Possibly because they’re doing the things that work for them (and they become PWSS) instead of just nitpicking and criticizing every small details of the program (without even reading the book at least twice).
Personally, I have some things in the program I don’t agree with, but I don’t feel the constant need to bring those things up.

Gabor I completely agree.February 6, 2021 at 10:12 pm #28875Adam PlayfootParticipant
Also for anyone reading this, if you beat around the bush and it helps you to stutter less don’t add to your suffering by now believing that people think you have a language disorder??? This program helps your speech and your mental health. You don’t need to be insecure about how you speak by beating around the bush if it ultimately helps your speech.February 7, 2021 at 2:52 pm #28881GáborParticipant
And you also don’t have to use one crutch all the time. Non-stutterers are searching for the exact words and hesitating time to time, too, it’s a completely normal phenomenon.February 8, 2021 at 8:45 am #28883JavierModerator
Hi Gábor and Adam,
I fully agree with what Gábor says. If you don’t like using Crutch 5, for example, don’t use it. As long as you know other ways (Crutches) to avoid appearing speech disabled, that’s fine!
As you might know, my first language is Spanish, not English. So, although I consider that I speak English pretty good, I don’t speak like a native speaker. And sometimes I might make grammar mistakes, or pronounce a word incorrectly. So what? Most of the times I am understood, and when I’m not, I will try to explain myself again, in a different way. Nobody cares. People have their own lives, their own problems… Nobody is going to think, or say, “omg, do you remember how Javier beat around the bush the other day???”
We are not being judged or examined every time we say something. We have to change that mindset. In my opinion, it’s absurd, incorrect, and harmful, as nobody gets benefitted by thinking like this.February 8, 2021 at 9:12 am #28888Leah AreffModerator
Hi Adam Werth,
We do not have time to constantly argue with people who do not want to use our methods. I will say this again, if you do not like our methods, please move on to something that would better suit you. We are not here to convince anyone that our methods work. The proof is in the pudding. If you had a genuine concern or question, I or Javier would gladly answer it. But I will repeat, it seems that you are only here to disprove our methods.
We have 70 million people to help stop stuttering, and unfortunately, none of us coaches is immortal. So you can see that we are hard-pressed for time, and have no time to entertain people whose sole purpose is to discredit us. Up and on! Good luck to you!February 12, 2021 at 3:37 am #28896
What about the crutch of interrupting someone??? Is that rude????
Why don’t stutterers just interrupt a person as they speak so they can stutter less???
Ordinarily this would be rude to the listener…but if a stutter speaks while someone else speaks alongside someone they wont stutterer!!!
Ah well—————–I went to a friends house today and was a non-stutterer….I have beaten it!!!!
Not in the sense that Im totaly fluent—-in the sense that I don’t give a hooey what anyone else thinks!!
Totaly speaking like a king with power!!!!!!!
