I have a question about "The Tick" as I call it. It's a noise that some people make before starting a sentence. Sometimes it happens when someone is rebounding from a swallow just before they have to speak. Other times some people just make the noise before they begin a sentence.
I may or may not have a mild case of misophonia, I can't say for sure, but it drives me batty! But what I would like to know is, why do people do this? What does it mean? Where did this nasty little habit come from? Is there a proper name for it?
We are both MS CCC-SLPs and fell in love while studying for our degrees. Since then we have done everything together - graduated, worked, and started a family. We spend most of our time with our family and the rest making this site for you.
