NewYorker,

Well for me, it's only on certain letters and syllables. For instance, I get stuck on "river" so I sound like I'm growling.... rrrrrrrrr... also "l" words like "little". And yet other hard consonant words like "love" "talk" or "speak" I have no problem with. Oh, "w" words as well like "water" or "wherever". Tho acting does help by rehearsing repetitively. Still, I tense whenever I get to those words.

EDIT:

Which is prolly part of the problem. My Mum used to explain it by saying that my mouth worked faster than my brain, which I think is only partly true.
