This was very helpful. Gabrielle, this is an excellent article! My son stutters and I am sensitive to how speech is used in characterization. One thing I wanted to mention is that some people do repeat a whole syllable.

I really hope to see characters who stutter AND show how amazing they are!

An excellent article, full of good information I can put to good use with an upcoming eventually character. Thank you! I have a character that I wanted to have a stutter. I fought with how to get it across for way too long. The character is very thoughtful and the major leader in his community. This was perfect thank you for sharing. Having an inside look helps, as I have gotten older I have developed a small stutter that is most prominent with the w and hard r sound and I was struggling to find a way to write that for this character I am reviving.
I am writng te character of Emily Blunt for a school play. She is an actor and she struggled with stuttering when she was younger. This article really helped me develop her and the script for the play. I have had a problem writing per batem what a studerer says. And reading what you wrote helped me.
