Tongue Twisters

According to the $Guinness book of World records
the toughest tongue :tongue: twister is
The sixth sick sheik’s sixth sheep’s sick.
You repeat this tongue twister rapidly ten times.

Other tongue twister are -

  2. If Peter Piper picked a pack of pickled
    peppers,
    How many pickled peppers would
    Peter Piper pick.
  3. I scream, you scream , we all scream for ice
    cream.

Tongue twisters are not just about repetition but also about difficult to make sounds. My dutch favorite:

Als schapen schapen scheren, scheren schapen schapen. (If sheep could shave sheeps, than sheeps will shave sheeps).

SCH =sggg

Betty bought a bit of butter but the butter Betty bought was bitter. So Betty bought a better butter and it was better than the butter Betty bought before.

Are you know Hindi language.

I’m not the pheasant plucker, I’m the pheasant plucker’s son. I’m only plucking pheasants till the pheasant plucker comes.

Are you saying that “sch” in Dutch is pronounced differently from “sch” in German?

Thanks.

It’s more focussed on the ch and less focussed on the s when compared to German. If that makes sense… Spanish j and then imagine an s also there, somewhere in the background.

I would pronounce the german word “schneider” as sjneider.

The dutch “sch” is bit like when laughing (ggg ggg ggg) when some trips, but with an “s” in front of the “ggg”
