    Default Underbite Lisp?

    Having once had an underbite, i've realized that Morrissey's lisp is derived from his underbite.. i never had a lisp but it obviously results in a speech impedement for some...

    Well, just try it yourself. Put your bottom teeth over your top teeth (hence creating an underbite) and then SPEAK!!!
    Thanks for the timeless response, how original.

    He certainly does not have a lisp.
    What gives you that idea?
    On what letters does he lisp?
    I have never heard any. You are a dimwit.

    What has a lisp got to do with his sexuality?

    And how can M Shields think persuading us he's got a lisp persuades us he's straight.

    I'm very confused!!

    He does have a very slight speech impedement, derived from his underbite, (surely you can hear it?) but it is indeed VERY slight, and I certainly wouldn't call it a lisp. What does it have to do with sexuality? Fuck knows.

    No I can't hear it at all.
    On which letter in particular are you meaning? "s"?

    A lisp and sexuality- probably nothing. maybe. M Sheilds is a wishful thinker, that's all. Don't be confused.

    Other than that, he does have beautiful teeth. I think, anyway.

    Watch his teeth on the Seasick, Yet Still Docked video. You can see that when he says "scavenging through life's very constant lulls" and "oh this is very clear to you", his teeth are causing him to lisp on the letter 's'. It's very subtle but it's there.

    And yes, when you have an underbite, you will naturally lisp. It's pretty unavoidable. As per the sexuality thing, it's a very common stereotype that gay men lisp. Obviously, it has no bearing here (no matter how gay Moz seems) since we're talking strictly about dental deformities.

    Really time to give this a rest don't you think?
    Also, I didn't know it was common for gay men to lisp.

    In some songs he does overemphasize the sibilant s sounds and then in the next song the 'lisp' is completely gone. Just like he sometimes overdoes his flat Northern vowel sounds on other songs.

    Well, he is very sssssssssexy anyway, whichever way he enunciates.
    How can you say an over-emphasis occasionally on the "s", sound is a lisp?
    I would class mis-pronunciation of "s" as making "th" sound - No?
