This means someone telling a lie has to take frequent pauses to consider the words before they turn them loose.
Filler words, such as during moments of hesitation often slip out when someone lies.

Someone who is lying may also rephrase the question when giving their answer.
For example, a conversation may go something like this: You Say: Stuttering and using filler words go hand in hand because both are virtually involuntary reactions to trying to speak something that's not the truth.
In some cases, someone who is lying will pause frequently...sometimes right in the middle of a sentence.
They may also pause for longer and respond more slowly than someone telling the truth.
These filler words, referred to as word-fumbles, can offer clues about the intentions of the person speaking.
In normal speech, contractions are used to shorten a sentence so you can get a point across quickly and clearly.
Most people caught in the act of lying will flat out deny it, and some will even become angry if you persist.
