What are Tongue Twisters?

Tongue Twisters are sentences, phrases, sequence of words, or verses that are purposefully difficult to pronounce and often cause humorous mistakes.

Tongue Twisters exist in English as well as other languages and sometimes seem to sound like short songs, poems or rhymes. Most tongue twisters feature alliteration, where the same letters or sounds are repeated. The content or meaning of the tongue twisters are fanciful and humorous. They have no sense or use other than twisting your tongue!

Why learn Tongue Twisters?

Tongue Twisters are fun word games that twist your tongue – literally! They are useful in improving speech, pronunciation and accent. You may have seen a vocalist warming up his vocal cords before a big performance. They often engage in tongue twisters  to focus on the clarity of their words.

Tongue twisters also encourage confidence and remind the readers to pace with words and to be attentive to each word and syllable. Engaging with tongue twisters is just like engaging with a physical activity. The more you engage, the more your muscles learn and remember to properly pronounce the words.
