Yes @Marjo they're definitely tongue twisters. But then my Finnish isn't what it used to be roflLOL

Re: Tongue twisters

Another one: 

Kun rämäpää määrää määränpään, on päämääränä rämäpään määräämä määränpää.

This one is easier to say at least to me as a native speaker, but is funny because of the repeating letters. I would imagine for someone learning to speak Finnish it would be super hard! Smiley Very Happy

Re: Tongue twisters

But apparently it means "When the drift determines the destination, the goal is the goal set by the dumbbell."

[ Edited ]

That first Finnish one was a killer, @Marjo!

 

Here's one from Germany:

 

Fischers Fritze fischt frische Fische; Frische Fische fischt Fischers Fritze.

 

(Fritz, the fisherman’s son, fishes for fresh fish; For fresh fish fishes Fritz, the fisherman’s son.)

Re: Tongue twisters

This is one I haven't seen for a while, from a Dr. Seuss book, I think:

 

Through three cheese trees three free fleas flew.
While these fleas flew, freezy breeze blew.
Freezy breeze made these three trees freeze.
Freezy trees made these trees' cheese freeze.
That's what made these three free fleas sneeze.

 

Astounded

LOL Is that Google translate? Smiley LOL I'd put it something like... when a daredevil determines the destination, the destination is the one determined by the daredevil. yahoo
