In 1977 I was working in Hollywood as a lawyer, and I was representing well known bodybuilder Mr Ferrigno in his negotiations with Universal Studios.
Although both sides were happy to work with each other and agree terms, the process was slowed by my client's intermittent, but extreme, stutter.
One day I was quite exasperated by his inability to pronounce the salary that he wished me to insist upon. Again and again he tried to say the words, but nothing came out.
Suddenly, I remembered that speech defects are frequently context sensitive, and can disappear if the communicator switches to another mode of vocalisation, so I said "Lou, sing it."
