Hi!

What do you call a person who can't speak correctly because his tongue is attached to the floor of his mouth? In portuguese, we say "língua presa". I've heard people saying "he speaks with a slip", but I think that a person who has a slip can't pronounce some very specific sounds only, not all of them. What do you guys think about that? How can I say "língua presa" in English?
