In their rebuttal to my letter (see above), Armson and Kalinowski argue that they accurately conveyed in their recent JSHR article (Armson & Kalinowski, 1994) my position on the existence of inherent differences between normal speakers and people who stutter. To buttress their contention of accuracy, Armson and Kalinowski quote at some length remarks I made in two prior publications (Adams, 1984, 1985).
I invite readers to reexamine those quotations, paying particular attention to the appearance of such tentative phrases and words as “it is even possible” (Adams, 1984; p. 101) in the first quotation, and “may,” which was used three times (Adams, 1985; p. 193) in the second. Is the choice of this kind of cautious language reflective of a man who has staked out an unequivocal position as Armson and Kalinowski (1994)  believe I have done?
