Most languages have their own, and they can be quite a challenge for adults and children alike ... Tongue Twisters are phrases designed to be particularly difficult to articulate. They can be used to help improve one's pronunciation, but most importantly they're a usually a good laugh
As my mother tongue is French, I only know tongue twisters in that language and none in English. Since yesterday was Tongue twisters Day, I thought it'd be a great opportunity for you guys to help me discover some of your favourite tongue twisters, in English or any language! It'll be really fun to see what they look like, and try to pronounce them
Here are a couple of French "virelangues":
- Si six scies scient six cyprès, six cents scies scient six cent cyprès.
- Ce ver vert sévère sait verser ses verres verts.
- Les chaussettes de l'archi-duchesse, sont-elles sèches ou archi-sèches.
Looking forward to your replies

An American one for you @EmilieT:
How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood.
Say that fast 5 times when you've had a drink
And don't ask me what a woodchuck is. I think it's some sort of small animal but never seen one myself.

Yes @Cleoriff I googled and found a couple more pics. As I say never seen one but then they're unlikely to be bopping down a Manhattan street
