The phrase “proper” means the same thing as “the right way.”
That is, people who have a disability can have the same way of speaking as other people.
But some people with language disabilities have a different way of saying things, and this may be their disability.
That’s because they can’t fully express themselves, or their voice has a different pitch or timbre.
For example, many people with speech disorders have trouble hearing.
That doesn’t mean they can never hear, but it does mean they have difficulty articulating their thoughts and feelings.
A disability can affect the way that someone says certain words, so it can be hard to tell when someone has a disability.
The phrase ‘proper’ means the different way that people say the same word.
You can also tell if a person has a language impairment if you notice their language has a distinctive pitch, timbre, or tone.
If someone’s voice sounds like it’s coming out of their mouth rather than their lips, that’s a disability, not a sign of an inherent disability.
