    stutter/stammer

    is there actually a difference between thses two? Even a slight one? Cause my dictionary says they're equivalents, yet I've just seen a movie where this guy said someone stutters, and some other guy corrected him, saying he was supposed to use the stammer word.

    I think:
    Stutter=repeating sounds/ partial sounds (I bought a c-c-c-car).
    Stammer=stops in speech (I bought a ----------- car.)
    Заранее благодарю всех за исправление ошибок в моём русском.

    Dictionary.com agrees.
