slide

Uttering the different sounds of a syllable with prolonged, slow motion transitions: moving slowly through the syllable or word. In the slide technique the stutterer prolongs slightly the initial sound and the transition to the rest of the word, keeping the release as smooth and gradual as possible, and maintaining sound throughout.
