Twisted tongue

Everyone loves to play with language, almost as much as they enjoy playing with their kids. We have developed many ways to play with it: rhymes, songs, palindromes, many if not most jokes, to mention a few. Among the most enduring and enjoyable language toys are tongue-twisters. Tongue-twisters test your skill in quickly pronouncing carefully contrived utterances that run you through a gauntlet of common slips of the tongue. If you are an actor or radio announcer, these are great exercises of enunciation and articulation. Here is our collection of tongue-twisters from around the world. We will be adding to them, so let us know if we missed any or missed your language. PLEASE INCLUDE TRANSLATIONS FOR ALL FOREIGN-LANGUAGE TONGUE-TWISTERS!
