Sentence revisions

Sentence revisions, like repetitions, are normal, they occur in everybody’s speech. However, if that happens too often the communication gets disturbed. In cluttering, sentence revisions are common.

For example: ”I cycled, uh … I walked home.” Or: “Then we went back to New Y … um, oh no, we went to Boston first and had a cup of coffee there… no, we shopped. I think. Hmm… maybe it was the other way around”.

Like repetitions, sentence revisions are symptoms of syntactic cluttering.
