Every speech therapist I see, recommends me talking in rhythm by patting a table or my own leg. Like this: re-com-mend: tap-tap-tap. You tap with each syllable. When I pay much attention, it seems to work, but it is against my nature. I always confuse whether to tap my hand or focus on my mouth or what. I don’t feel comfortable with this method. Instead I have another method: With multisyllable words I start by saying the last syllable and then the last two syllables, and the last three etc… Congratulations: (kon-gra-chu-lei-shens) shens ei-shens lei-shens chu-lei-shens ra-chu-lei-shens gra-chu-lei-shens kon-gra-chu-lei-shens I find this method to be especially useful in Turkish, my mother tongue, because unlike English it is based on one word plus many suffixes.
