WHAT IS DYSPHEMIA OR STUNNING?
The stuttering or stammering as more commonly known, is an alteration of verbal fluency . Dysphemia or stuttering is characterized by the frequent repetition or prolongation of sounds, syllables or words or by frequent doubts or pauses that interrupt the rhythmic flow of speech.

Sometimes it may happen that suddenly and with just cause, you speak worse or even stop speaking, this may be due, for example, to jealousy or nerves about a change in your life.
