2. Unnatural Rhythm When Speaking
Many people who suffer from Broca’s Aphasia have an unnatural rhythm to the way they speak. They may pronounce words wrong, hold certain letters or words out, and use the wrong syllables to pronounce a word. They may talk too slow or too fast. Some people even talk too fast or slow that it’s hard to understand them. They may also change the rhythm in the middle of a sentence or conversation. Although the person speaking may not realize their rhythm is off, it can be hard for the listeners to understand.
Some people are aware that they are speaking in an unnatural rhythm and will try to correct it. This can either make it harder or easier for them to speak.
When the person becomes excited, frustrated, or emotional, they are more likely to change the rhythm of their speech and have trouble correcting it. Many people with the condition don’t realize they are speaking unnaturally.
