Abstract
Given that normalcy is contingent upon social valuation, the theoretical and socio-political conditions that give rise to the disabled speaker must be interrogated. I contend that disabled speech is made intelligible as an embodied activity that threatens rational structures and is performed (1) against a theoretical prejudice that normalizes expectations of disclosing reason through speech, (2) as a disruption to the logic of linguistic and communicative systems, (3) and through lived experience as a flawed temporal “choreography” of the body.
