When we bungle, misspeak, or fill our speech with um, er, and uh sounds, we are speaking with disfluencies. Michael Erard wrote a book on the subject called Um…: Slips, boo-boos, and Verbal Blunders, and What They Mean. Learn athletic what disfluencies are, their social smell, and why they may not be such a bad breathe from Michael and Katie Gore of Speech IRL.
