false fluency

(1) A period of almost complete freedom from stuttering usually occurring early in therapy and due to attitudinal changes. Sometimes called the "flight into fluency," or, (2) fluent speech with which the stutterer attempts to deny his problem, such as using fluent asides or playing false roles as in clowning or acting officious, (3) the fluent speech that results from successful avoidance.
