Brian and Rosalee That is an interesting study. I am always interested in Stuttering in multilingual persons due to the fact that I am from an area where people speak many languages. I speak more than two languages and my stuttering varies in all these languages. In my mother tongue which is one of the dialects spoken in the North West Part of Cameroon, I stutter more. I have had speech therapy in English which has helped me a lot. However when I try to transfer the techniques I learned in English to the words I stutter on in my mother tongue, I do not do this very successfully. I think my stuttering is more in one language than the other. What can you say about this?
