My read on the sample sentence you gave is that you would count the stuttered syllables as you indicated, assuming that 'week' was an easy word repetition. There are a total of 8 syllables in the sentence, in terms of the actual intended message. I would not count the second 'week' as a syllable in the total count in the sentence. Repeating 'week', even a normal repetition, does not constitute an addition to the message. Hope this is clear. Regards, Lynne
