Message 1: stuttering in Lingua Franca

Date: Mon, 26 Nov 2001 16:00:21 -0600

Subject: stuttering in Lingua Franca

An article about an unethical 1939 investigation into the causes of 
stuttering and responses by speech pathologists to recent media 
allegations about the experiment appear in the November, 2001 issue 
of Lingua Franca.

Unfortunately, the article isn't online, and since it was in the last 
issue of the magazine, it might be difficult to get ahold of.

In the interest of full disclosure, and at the risk of appearing 
self-promoting, I should note that I'm the author of the piece.
