The Comparatist’s Disease These days I am a more or less inaudible stutterer, or stammerer. ” But I do talk the talk (inwardly). ”52 I am a professor of comparative literature with a concomitant intellectual interest in at least three types of verbal substitution typical among stutterers. First, there is translational or interlinguistic synonymy, whereby a word in one language passes for a word in another language. When growing up in bilingual Montréal, I used bilingual synonymy as a means to avoid stuttering.
Going to be a p-p-p-poppa! A p-p-p-pater! 62 Third, there is the personal substitution, whereby one person, who seems fluently articulate, speaks for another person, who seems silent. Sometimes a stutterer will seek out a persona to substitute for himself as speaker. As an example, consider the story of the stutterer Moses and his articulate brother Aaron. Throughout their multilingual careers, Mo- P R E A M B U L AT I O N S 23 ses is the ventriloquist; Aaron, who apparently speaks only a single language, but that one well, is Moses’ dummy.
67 There are often material consequences to a stutterer’s choosing to say one word instead of another. For example, the stutterer sometimes gets one thing instead of another. In their didactic novel —And the Stutterer Talked (1938), Abraham Kanter and Abe Kohn describe the sort of giveand-take event that most adult stutterers recall from childhood: One morning [the mother of the novel’s hero, Billy] sent him for lemons, and he returned with a purchase of oranges. Why, she wanted to know, did he bring oranges instead of lemons?
