Fun Fact of the Week #170
Scooby's speech impediment is nearly identical to a clinically diagnosed language difficulty. Dr. Steven Long, associate professor in Speech Pathology and Audiology at Marquette University and an expert in the field, called Scooby's tendency to replace the first letter of certain words with the letter R "rhotacization," which by the clinical definition is: "Pronunciation of a vowel to reflect a following r in the orthography, as for example in American English farm, bird."
