Several years ago, I came to this list for information about early 
recordings of disfluent speaking -- "uh" and "um," hemming and 
hawing, restarted sentences, etc.

I'm pleased to announce that my book, Um...: Slips, Stumbles, and 
Verbal Blunders, and What They Mean, will be published in August by 
Pantheon. Um... reviews the natural history of slips of the tongue 
and speech disfluencies, why they occur, and what they say about us. 
You can read more about the book at

Thanks to members of the list for their interest and assistance and 
for facilitating my research.

Sincerely,
Michael Erard
