It’s when you’re trying to start the car and either you let go of the clutch too fast or don’t use enough gas and the car starts to shake and then stall. That part is like having repetitions on a word or blocking and then getting done with the stuttering moment. The car driver settles down (I know I was quite tense when I was stalling) and makes slower, more precise movements to ease the clutch and gas into perfect unison. Just like the person using a cancellation will calm down after the stuttering moment, go back and ease into the word, slowing things down and saying the word in an easy onset/ prolongated manner.
