Tongue Twisters

13 posts in this topic

Hi guys!

I don't know about you all, but I love tongue twisters. They're challenging and usually pretty hysterical the first few times lol. Anyways, I have a few I'd like to share and if you guys have any, please add! It would be greatly appreciated :) . Some good ones are....

Peter Piper Picked A Peck Of Pickled Peppers

Humuhumunukunukuapua'a (The unofficial state fish of Hawaii)

and my personal favorite....

Lake Chargogagogmanchogagogchabunagunggamog (it means "You fish on your side, I fish on my side, no one fish in the middle" and yes, that's an actual place lol)

My personal favorite has always been

How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood? A woodchuck would chuck all the wood he could chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood.

I have one:

Betty Botter bought a bit of butter

The butter Betty Botter bought was a bit bitter

And made her batter bitter.

But a bit of better butter makes better batter.

So Betty Botter bought a bit of better butter

Making Betty Botter's bitter batter better.

I have such a hard time with tongue twisters. But they are so much fun!!!!

Hey! I like these tongue twisters... I know some, but in Spanish (trabalengüas):

Pablito clavó un clavito

¿Qué clavito clavó Pablito?

Tres tristes tigres comían trigo

en tres tristes trastos de trigo.

María Chucena su choza techaba,

y un techador que por allí pasaba

le dijo: María Chucena,

¿techas tu choza o techas la ajena?

Ni techo mi choza ni techo la ajena;

yo techo la choza de María Chucena.

In Polish language we have lots of tongue twisters but in our language simple "Hello" (Cześć:)) isn't so simple for foreigners :)
