What if?

One of those thoughts that happened to float around in my head this morning:

What if Gunkel, Deissmann and co had suffered from a bad stutter as they spoke?

"D-D-Die Re-re-religionsge-ge-ge-geschichtliche Schschchchchch-ule"

You could hardly finish a word, in German, never mind a sentence. NT scholarship would have taken a different route!

One type of therapy I read about which has had success in overcoming a stammer, is to learn to focus on speaking very slowly and carefully, pronouncing every syllable .... academic German recited by a reformed stammerer might kill the audience.
