Mispronouncing or mispeaking your words

Recommended Posts

Penny,

 

Are you sure she really understands that Murial isn't the correct word? Someone who misheard something may swear they are repeating the word correctly. Maybe she doesn't know its really mural. For the longest time I thought it was mouse meat pie not mince meat pie. And now that I need to wear hearing aids I won't even say all the things I mishear when I have my HA's removed and am watching tv. I actually am shocked at what I apparently mishear or else they are getting really crude with what is said on tv. :huh:

 

To all,

 

Just out of curiousity has anyone else had a neuropsychological evaluation to see if they truly have cognitive impairment?

My mother and several of her relatives call those wall pictures murials. In fact they would define murial as a 'pixture' that takes up the whole wall.

 

I also have problems combining parts of words. I don't know how many times I have said mastly, then corrected myself by saying monly -- instead of mostly and mainly.


Warm wishes,

Jefa

Penny,

 

HA! I read Toin Coss and didn't even think it was strange! I actually put it together as Coin Toss in my head as I read it and had to go back to see what had been wrong.

 

I think it is sometimes the brain moving too fast for eyes and mouth. I have so many of these I can't even think of them. It is funny in class, I find myself having to slow down my talking at times or I would come out with tons more.

 

Two more weeks until I see the specialist in Madison at the University to see what might be causing my trouble swallowing.

 

Mando.

I have only just noticed this thread - strange as is a big one!

 

As part of my job I quite often have to do presentations, and I have found that I have more problems getting the words out than I used to. I put this down to my mouth getting smaller. I also find that speaking for any length of time is tiring for my mouth and also my voice. My typing has become less consistent as well - I have assumed that is due to less sensation in my fingers.

 

 

P.S. In our house we also call murals, murials. This in homage to Hilda Ogden a TV character in a long running British soap - Coronation Street, who use to call a big picture on her wall a murial.

Lizzie,

 

You KNOW MY typing abilities re:Sunday night CHAT!lol

 

Anyway, I have the same trouble as you, in that talking really tires my voice, as well.

My jaw, tongue and mouth tend to get sore too.

 

Amazing too, as I never USED to have this trouble (Pre-Scleroderma).


Special Hugs,

This saying things wrong is a newer symptom for me, so new that at this point when I say something wrong (seems like I just don't pronounce things correctly, I throw in an "r" I think or something) anyway, right now when it happens, I don't miss a beat. I keep right on talking like it didn't happen (because I'm not sure where it came from, I'm thinking, that was weird ), only I am feeling embarrassed about it now because I'm starting to realize that it isn't a once in a while thing.

 

Everyone mispronounces stuff once in while, but I am doing this often and it is bothersome because I've always been quick and had witty things to say, and fast. Now I go to say something funny or whatever and I mess it up because I slurred words into each other or because I mispronounced one. My kids think it is hilarious and will mock the word I say wrong. Gotta love 'em, they help me see the humor!
