This is one of the most interesting sites I have found. It is, for me, a new line of study that offers valuable insights on the way human beings communicate -- or fail to communicate. I am grateful for your research and your posting it on the web.
Thanks for your kind comments. I am very surprised at the response I've been getting since my site got listed on Yahoo a couple weeks ago. Not only has my hit counter registered several thousand hits, the feedback is very positive and interesting. I get comments from people on both sides of the issue: some are excessive pausers who are finally glad to know their condition is not pathological, while others are those who despise filled pauses and are actively involved in improving their own and others' speech skills. I'm glad to be able to share what I've learned during my study of filled pauses with others--that's what the Internet is all about!
