  1. This is called “hesitation pauses” – unintentional stops of the information flow in the process of communication, and they are caused by a number of factors:

    • individual characteristics – narrow outlook, weak speech skills, small vocabulary;
    • psychological difficulties – agitation, temperament, emotional arousal, poor memory, distracted attention, feeling awkward;
    • physiological features – difficulties in regulating breathing when feeling unwell.
      There are many dissertations about this, but I will add to the standard definition the experience of consulting and working with people who want to speak publicly. Often such hesitations are used where the conditional “weight” of each word is very important. For example, politicians are afraid to say something superfluous and thus take the time to choose the exact word. The less quick thinking a person has, the longer it takes to keep this pause, and this time increases with age. As a result, if quasi-sounds (these are the same “eeemmm, eee,nuuuu”) in my youth, during moments of self-confidence, and so on. if they are not noticeable – they are short, then it becomes difficult to perceive information with constant interruption.

  3. I liked Anastasia's answer. I'll update you on the issue:

    Why it is impossible to replace the words parasites, multi-storey clerks, Russian indefinite articles (mat) and hesitation pauses with ordinary pauses, or to speak continuously at all. A human can't think like a computer. He either tries to compose the phrase perfectly, so that it rings crystal clear, and it takes a long time, or he formulates it so that the interlocutors, bitches, never find fault, or he doesn't bother at all, but still formulates it for a long time. You need to remember that he has already said that he lied in the past times, that the interlocutor remembers who he is, and where we are, and what age it is now. That is why smooth speech without pauses is sometimes perceived as learned by the actor, that is, lies from the first to the last letter. Pauses are the presence of a person here and now, with me. That means he's not a robot. Like a fiddler's little mistake, like a bus driver's biting joke. When a person is very worried, lies a lot, or feels less competent, doesn't feel very well, or the audience is hostile, the pauses become even more ominous. Why not cram silences instead of dragging out hesitation pauses or piling up endless paperwork? Because it's like the term dead air on the radio, it's the death of communication. The man shut up — that's all, he's an idiot, he's dead, he's forgotten about us, he's completely lied, he has nothing to say, and they interrupt him. Like at a metal band concert, when the instruments stop in the middle of a song, so that the guitar or keys give out a soulful solyak, and at this moment the audience claps, thinking that the song is already over. Words that are parasitic and clandestine fill the weight of the speaker: he says epicenter instead of center, unpleasant instead of evil or unpleasant, actual potentials instead of probability, and so on. If you remove this garbage, the speaker in the context will look stupid and incompetent to himself and even to others. Clerical tasks allow you to tire the listener out, and they will not ask sharp questions. And without a mate, it is impossible to achieve mutual understanding in some cases.
