In 18.1.1.1.2. it says that it is a infraction if the stall count is not started with the word "stalling".

In 10.5.1. it says to restart play the player may call "Disc in" or "Stalling". So to be correct after calling "Disc in" I would have to start the stall count with "Stalling"?

The two rules are contradictory.

There is no contradiction. There are at least two situations that this rule covers which explain why two different calls can be made to restart play.

First, there may be no thrower, in which case 'Disc in' rather than 'Stalling' would obviously be the correct call.

Second, the defender restarting play may not wish to initiate a stall count but instead run to cover a free player elsewhere; again, they may call 'Disc in' instead.

So the rules do not contradict themselves, even if the word 'stalling' is required after the 'disc in' - clearly it is necessary to be able to call one or the other as required.

Correct. For me it was not totaly clear why you can either say "disc in" or "stalling" but it is correct that the player checking the disc doesn't necessarily have to mark so he has to have the option of just calling "disc in".

So any stallcount has to start with the word "stalling" :)

Agree on that.

Yep. Initially I confused myself by wondering whether you only needed 'stalling' at the beginning of the stall count and it wouldn't apply when RE-starting a stall count that had been paused by a call. But actually the rule on restarting stall counts [9.6] does also demand the word 'stalling'. So I think we've covered everything on this one.
