On the Partisan & Propositionality

Char, Leaves of Hypnos: "Brighten the imagination of those who stammer instead of speaking, who blush the moment they assert something. These are steadfast partisans."

Foundations of Stuttering: [on "utterances having low propositional substance"] Many sources have reported that no stuttering occurs in recitative speaking at various assemblages, such as in certain church rituals. In effect, such performance is choral speaking. Stutter is also said to not be evident in even solo performances of, for instance, the Lord's Prayer, or the Pledge of Allegiance. Regarding this latter group of examples, it should be clear that the propositional value of such expressions is minimal, and that rehearsal and practice must play a crucial role.
