Why am I whistling when I talk?

Post  Paradox on Thu 21 Apr 2011, 5:55 am

Why am I whistling with I talk? It's always been a pet peeve of mine. We work in a quiet place and one customer would speak very loudly and whistle his S's. Like nails on a chalk board to me.

And now I'm doing it. Pay back for being unsympathetic? Did my mouth get fat and loose?( I've lost and gained 50 pounds in 3 years, thank you topamax)

Any speech therapists out there? Help? I'm annoying myself! Suspect

Question

I think being deaf is not that bad sometimes.

People whistle while they speak? talk about multi-tasking.
Wonder if that would come handy in nowadays innovative music industry?!



Sorry, I couldn't help it!

I believe the speech therapist indeed can help,
and it probably has more to do with the way how you form your tongue against the roof of the mouth
and how you press it against the teeth than the "muscularity of your lips",
as I remember in my youth when I needed the speech therapy myself for lisp, particularly.

Perhaps it's just the case with you? improper mouth parts position?

You silly billy...my friend talks about how lovely it is to take her hearing aids out at the end of the day and not hear a thing. Little noises waking her up in the middle of the night? Nope.

How are you at lip reading? She is the best and because she is so good people forget, and yes Twisted Evil , we do position her in strategic places when we go places so we can get the best gossip from other tables. "She said WHAT?!??!?!" Rolling Eyes

I had to take years of speech therapy, I had a cross of Yooper accent (think of the move Fargo) and a deep southern accent. No one could understand me but my sister. I remember not being able to say "bird" and "law". Even in sixth grade I remember my best friend making me say "down town" over and over cause I said "don ton". Enunciation? Never heard of it. Razz

So maybe I just need a refresher course, eh?

Don-ton ? lololol

Right up my alley, I like things simplified.
Have you meet me back then I sure would have appreciated your "Yooper accent", guhrl!
(gotta Google that up)

Re: lip reading. I can do lip reading fairly well but in Polish only, unfortunately,
sometimes I can 50-50 spot on from afar what is being said, lol,
- but the Sue Thomas: F.B.Eye certainly I am not, lololol

TURD: More than second and less than fourth.
YOUBETCHA: Yooper phrase, "Yes, without a doubt."
PROFANE: Gas used in profane heaters.

Kul!!

The one I'm STILL most often harassed for:

Tree = three

And I haven't lived in the U.P. ( Upper Peninsula of Michigan) since I was in kindergarten. It's actually a Finnish accent and my mother hated it even though many people spoke that way. She'd look at me and say "stop it! You sound like a damn Finlander!". She was Swedish. Wink

If I'm up there for more than two days, or if I'm really drunk and you ask me to talk that way I can't get back out for a day or so.

For years I had a bumper sticker that said "say ya to da UP, eh?". It's was the state tourism slogan for many years. True slogan? "Say yes to Michigan". I found a slew of other yoopers cause they were the only who knew what it said. Smile
