A 28-year-old female asked:
is sudden on and off stuttering in adulthood, when never occurred in childhood, normal?

No- not normal: Stuttering at any age is not normal and especially if the person was not doing it before. He should be taken for a full evaluation perhaps with a neurologist that has a special interest in language disorders and then a plan for intervention should be established sooner rather than later.
