Speech problems are common with BI. Not many people I know with BI have them though, lucky gits, but for me my central nervous system was damaged giving me weak muscles, especially noticable in the face and it is difficult for me to clearly pronounce words containing Bs, Ps and Ms. I think I have mentioned that part before but Hey, I have a BI :). At my local Headway we usually have a quiz. I am sometimes the master of these quizzes, not that I am a boffin cos I clearly am not but because I might be the quizmaster sometimes. I have read out questions before and one person in the group really can be quite rude at times. Because of his BI he probably does not realise this. I might say the word 'basketball' and he might think I said 'Vasketvall' which is completely ridiculous cos as far as I know, vasketvalls do not exist. I might tell him next time, I clearly said 'basketball'. What the hell is a 'Vasketvall'? He would most probably say "I don't know, you said it" but I can then say "Why would I say a non existant word?".
