Hi Vickie, Thank you, so much, for your generous comments. They are greatly appreciated. You are correct: the only way to deal with a fear is to face it head-on. In my case, my fear of stuttering was merely a thought in my head. When I confronted it - it went away. For most of my life, I avoided 13 letters of the alphabet. Today, I use every single one. What's more, I pluck whatever words I wish from the extremities of my immense vocabulary (as a result of word substitution) and use them whenever I choose. As I have said before, the debilitating oral shackles have finally been removed. If I had continued changing the words around - they would still be firmly in place. Thank you for taking part in the discussion. I wish you every success with your studies. Kindest regards Alan
