I know what you mean. I'm not a big talker, but when forced to talk, I do find myself repeating. I have a terrible fear of being misunderstood in a situation, so sometimes, especially, when I think I am at fault, I overexplain because I'm nervous. It isn't that people have a hard time understanding me, becuase they don't ask, "what? Could you repeat that?", I'm just afraid they won't get it or they'll think something bad about me....(stupid insecurities) :x
Anyway, I think the repeating thing is definately connected to social phobia. I for one, sometimes feel like a total alien around other people, and I just believe they will have a hard time understanding me, when the truth is, we are really just the same. Don't know if that what you were referring to, but it's how I can relate to it.

Yea I find that I have to repeat my self a lot to especially out in public.When I get really nervous I slur or stutter a lot or speak in a low voice.I can understand how it could be even worse if you have a accent.

Oh yea Just like Septor Said!

In My country, The (Local) Language is very hard, there are more than 7 different accents and becuz of that many words have changed,and its difficult for some people. Usually every family, have a quite different accent, My family has the Real and old accent which i always have difficulty with. At skool, i have to speak differently than how i do at home, Sometimes, whenever i need to talk to someone in my class, i wud use my accent becuz im more comfortable with, at the Same time Others dont get it. Thats really embarassing, i wud need to repeat myself and use proper - modern Sense! Im not Living in the Desert! LOL
I Do Repeat myself Alottt, Either i need to adjust my words with the modern world OR live in a Tent!

In italy we have a huge amount of local accents, you can feel a difference in the way people talk just by travelling 20 kilometers in any direction. What is odd is that everyone finds all accents other than his to be incredibly funny and stupid-sounding.

To answer your question, no I don't have that problem normally, even though I do sometimes have trouble pronouncing the words clearly when I'm confronted with extremely challenging, axiety provoking situations (like ordering a cup of coffee, buying a newspaper etc. )

I died and I reincarnated in myself again.

i feel bad for the hispanic population that's EXPLODED in the states, it's one thing that it's such a heated topic AND many of the adults don't know how to speak english.

when i worked in retail, we'd get people coming in that didn't know a word of english and i felt so bad when i couldn't make out what they were saying. alot of sign language went on but i couldn't imagine how they must have felt.

Default /slur/low voice

Yeah i notice at times my voice goes low, almost monotone and i slur a bit or mumble.Like at work my co worker Mark who seems like a real nice guy always say say that again, etc? I always have to repeat myself around him.At the end of work today i mentioned to him i have social anxiety disorder , i said in case he thought i was nervous or anxious then he would understand.He said yeah alot of people seem to have that and its ok.I think what bugs me is sometimes i hear myself speaking with my "put on" Canadian accent i did when i was young to fit in when i first came over to Canada.Its like my brain doesnt know which accent to use my Canadian one or my normal irish accent lol.Its the weirdest thing but i think it plays a hand in my Social anxiety disorder.I just dont feel confident what comes out of my mouth others will hear or understand.Any idea why we slur or talk with a low voice in anxiety provoking situations?
