Tongue-twisters are Delicious

Some of the most common tongue-twisters have been around for more than 150 years. ‘Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled pepper’ appeared in the 1819 British book Peter Piper’s Practical Principles of Plain and Perfect Pronunciation. The most difficult one is famed to be: ‘The sixth sick sheik’s sixth sheep’s sick’. And the most well-known is probably, ‘She sells seashells by the seashore’.

Here are some others for your nimble tongues to play around with:

  • A bloke’s back brake-block broke
  • A dozen double damask dinner napkins
  • A fat-thighed freak fries thick fish
  • A knapsack strap, a strap from a knapsack
  • ‘Are you copper-bottoming ‘em, my man?’ ‘No, I’m aluminiuming ‘em, Mum.’
  • A truly rural frugal ruler’s mural
  • A soft shot-silk sash shop
  • Black bug’s blood
  • Diligence dismisses despondency
  • Freddy Thrush flies through thick fog
  • Gig-whip. Gig-whip. Gig-whip
  • Hath Hazel asthma?
  • Peggy Babcock. Peggy Babcock. Peggy Babcock
