Sammanfattning: Because I have stuttered for the most part of my life, I want to find out why it is that I don’t stutter when I sing. The purpose of the study is to find out if there is something within singing technique that can be applied to the common speech. Could singing work as a method for reducing stuttering? By studying and analyzing my own stutter I have found both differences and similarities in what is happening in my body when I speak or sing. With previous scientific research along with an interview I have tried to connect them to understand what is happening when a stutter occurs, and how singing differentiates from speaking. Stuttering is a diagnosis that inhibits a good flow in speech. The speech often gets chopped up and blockages make you fixate on one word for a long time. In some way the brain has learned a certain behavior that makes it so that every time you stutter your memory has autonomized a certain movement pattern such as closing the vocal folds, tensing muscles et cetera. Researchers today have not completely agreed on the reason for stuttering, but many things point to that you don't receive a strong enough ignition signal from the brain when you start to speak. In singing the brain has a predetermined rhythm and melody to focus on. The results show that self confidence plays a big role and that maybe singing in itself isn’t a cure for stuttering, but it might help with boosting self confidence and find techniques and methods for coping with it.
