Common Questions and Answers about Speech problems pronouncing words

speech

Problems with speech can include just trying to get the words out, pronouncing the words, the tonal quality of our speech, using emphasis and inflection. Problems with speech can be from weakness or spasticity of the muscles of our mouths, throats and vocal cords. Or it can be with the way our brain tries to direct the speech. There is a particular type of speech that is characteristic of MS and is called "scanning speech." You probably have all heard it at some time.
Gum line ression usually will not cause speech problems, only tooth sensitivity. Af far as cold tempatures causing speech problems, yes if the weather is real cold, people have difficulty in pronouncing certain sounds like m's or n's. But this usually only occurs at very low tempatures and not at warmer temps such as 45.
and she has problems pronouncing the words correctly. This has happend very sudden. She has been checked for all kinds of things - but nothing has been found yet and most doctors say they've never seen anything like it before. She has been scanned in the brain and spinal cord with no result. She has not been bitten by any insect and has no other symptoms. Do you have any idea what this could be?
It started off with me and my girlfriend noticing that i was jumbling my words and having trouble pronouncing words that i had no trouble with before. Then just a few days later i started to have a gasping feeling in chest and a racing heart, even when sitting. Headaches and pressure in the head followed, that lead to internet symptom searching. Which lead to me fearing I had a stroke or a brain tumor, by the way im 20 yrs old.
I do not have Sjogrens, Lupus or any of those auto-immune diseases according to my Rheumy. I would have to say the swallowing problems came first but now my speech is being effected dry mouth or not. I do this most everyday at some point or another. This started this year, it is my fairly newest symptom.
I apologize in advance for the length of this post but would be highly grateful for worthwhile advice and knowledge. I have an assumed (minor) difficulty pronouncing certain words. I would say the issue was first cited when I was 12 and persisted to be cited infrequently until the age of 15. From age 15 to 20, I had no indication to believe any issue existed.
The reason the Dr did not suspect hearing was because she could hear @ the time (when we were investigating the problem) it was earlier in her life when she was unable to hear - the time when speech (particular sounds) are imprinted in the brain - they are learning speech long before they use it! The Dr also checked her ears - said they were clear - no infection. Well there was actually clear fluid causing almost 100% blockage.
I have been having problems pronouncing words particularly ones that pertain an S. Also I have problems focusing. Does this have anything to do neurologically?
The father was not around during most of my granddaughter's infancy and he said he read that it is not unusual for children to have speech problems when the father is not there because the father has influence over the child's speech. Any truth to this?
My son understands most things said to him and can follow directions like give this to your dad, throw your diaper away or touch your nose, toes etc. He even can eat with a fork or spoon. However, his speech seems delayed as he only says babble type words. He can say bye, shoe, cat, mom, and dad. It is hard to get him to communicate clearly. Is this normal? Should I take him to a speech therapist?
I have problems with expressing myself, pronouncing some words, have trouble with tenses (especially with is/are) have trouble with recalling words and also don't use the proper words in certain cases. This is most visible when I am nervous or when caught off guard. From what I have read, these symptoms are typical of expressive language disorder, which may apply to you.
I worked in a room full of two year olds, and I agree with Joy that your daughter sounds like she's developing her speech normally. Like Joy, I think that if your daughter is older (3 or 4) and having problems with stuttering and pronunciation then you should get her assessed. My friend has a 4 year old who I still have trouble understanding. She always has to "translate" for me.
Since he turned 2 his vocab boosted and knows many words now BUT my NEW problem with him is that he does not pronounce his words correctly. Swallows sounds. We saw a speech theropist last week for an evaluation but have not heard back from him yet. He said from what he saw that he takes short cuts in his words. Instead of dog says dow - or ball says baw - bag says bay - Love says lol - Plum says pum and it goes on and on.
He does have some speech issues with pronouncing some of his letters and clarity of his words. He was not a late talker just late in the pronunciation. *Social Anxiety: My son has developed a fear of other children. He is afraid to be near or approach the other children. He will warm up to them after awhile but the minute they display any loud behavior he will retreat. He also does not want to sit on the rug with the other kids during story/song time.
In June 2004, I began to have symptoms of muscle fatigue all over. After MRI of brain and cervical spine, no problems found. Saw a neurolgist in Dec 2004 after having increased muscle fatigue and stiffness on the entire left side of body (even face), and brief muscle twitches all over. After a full neuro exam (but no EMG) I was told everything looked fine and I had good strength. Since then, the stiffness in the left leg has been much worse, usually after a period of sitting.
He does talk in full sentences, but he has problems pronouncing some words, for example, he drops the 's' sound in words beginning with s. He will say 'no' instead of snow and 'tore' instead of store. For the most part people can understand everything he says. I think that all he needs is a little more time to start pronouncing his words properly but I need a second opinion. Do you think I should seek a speech therapist.
And there are many reasons why a child might have speech and understanding problems. So on to the next therapist, also waiting for the next child paediatrician appointment and he is having ongoing help at day care. One ray of light is that he is starting to understand words and babbling like his life depends on it. Maybe (God willing) it's coming slowly. I just wish my little boy would say a single word.

dizziness, weakness/fatigue, pain/numbness in legs, confusion/trouble concentrating, trouble w/ speech (pauses and pronouncing or thinking of words), mood swings, and hip pain. My PCP also told me to mention the bladder problems I've been having to the neurologist before he sends me to a urologist.
You need him assessed for Auditory Processing Disorder (especially if he is pronouncing letters words incorrectly or struggles with words that have more than one sylabel). He needs his auditory memory and working memory assessed. He needs to be assessed for literal interpretation of lanuage (including Semantic Pragmatic Speech Disorder), comprehension, inference etc. Can he tell the difference in voice tone, pitch, inflection, facial expressions, gestures etc.
Hi TNT, nothing to elaborate too much, but I also have problems pronouncing my words, I'm very glad to hear that I am not the only one with this going on, I thought I was. I too, have a real difficult time with S's. Well that's all my input, just to let you know you arent' alone, and i'm glad to know i'm not either. Take care.
I am worried about my son who has turned 3 in January. He has speech problems and has difficulty pronouncing most words although he is getting easier to understand and is getting slightly better he is putting words together to form sentences but i find it hard to understand him most of the time.
I have recoverd very well in that I am back to work 3 days a week, I drive short distances 10 to 15 miles I have a some speech problems and loss of sensetion in my right hand and foot. I have been very fortunate that I am in good health and I have recovered very well after thepary and lots of support from my family and friends. The doctors have not been able to tell me why the stroke occured after to angiograms. Does anyone out there had a stroke but don't know why it occured.
About a week ago I noticed I was having trouble pronouncing certain words. Kind of like when you get tongue tied. My tongue feels kinda heavy and numb on the left side. It almost feels like its getting in the way when I talk. I find that if I speak for more than 15 minutes my voice gets really coarse and raspy. This has led to some slurring and stuttering which has freaked me out a little. My whole left side of face also feels tight and has always been this way since the ACDF surgery.
I wouldn't doubt that the language delay is due to the hearing problems. My son had severe language problems. He barely had any words at all for so long. For awhile they did suspect it was due to so many ear infections but he had great success with the tubes and then scored normally for hearing. He began speech therapy at 14 months old and had it an hour a week until he turned 3.
I developed symptoms like, a faster speech and reading speed, whole body shaking, and difficulty performing simple mathematical operations, difficulty pronouncing and spelling some words as well as muscular pain in my calf. Shortly, all the symptoms I mentioned diminished except for the reading problem, muscular pain and speech difficulty which is noticeable when I speak loudly or angrily. I find it hard to explain exactly what happens to me with this ‘reading problem’.
