Abstract

RECENTLY a soldier who had “lost” his speech through shell-shock was brought to me. I told him he was shamming, and that there would be trouble of an acute kind if he did not recover quickly. He was able to speak very well in a few days. I imagine that 99 per cent, of those who have lost their speech and then suddenly recovered it belong to the same category.
