Tongue Twisters - English

I love trying out many Tongue Twisters..


They are..

  • "A sequence of words, often alliterative, difficult to articulate quickly."
  • "A word or phrase used as a test for detecting foreigners, or persons from another district, by their pronunciation."
  • “A phrase or sentence built by (tiresome) repetition of the same words or sounds.”
I knew much in English, moreover, I have been always curious in collecting more n more such twisters.. Presenting few of them here to you, my dear friends..
Note :- beware.. might make ur tongue as in the pic.. hehe



If you tell Tom to tell a tongue-twister his tongue will be twisted as tongue-twister twists tongues.

Betty Botter had some butter, But, she said, this butter's bitter.
If I bake this bitter butter, It would make my batter bitter.
But a bit of better butter, That would make my batter better
So she bought a bit of butter Better than her bitter butter
And she baked it in her batter And the batter was not bitter
So 'twas better Betty Botter Bought a bit of better butter.

I was born on a pirate ship

Perplexed people peeked at peter pan peeping past the pipe with a pickled pepper pot

Nine nice night nurses nursing nicely.

Luke's duck likes lakes. Luke Luck licks lakes. Luke's duck licks lakes. Duck takes licks in lakes Luke Luck likes. Luke Luck takes licks in lakes duck likes.

Wayne went to Wales to watch walruses.

Mr.See owned a saw And Mr.Soar owned a seesaw.
Now, See's saw sawed Soar's seesaw Before Soar saw See,
Which made Soar sore Had Soar seen See's saw
Before See sawed Soar's seesaw, See's saw would not have sawed Soar's seesaw.
So Ssee's saw sawed Soar's seesaw.
But it was sad to see Soar so sore just because See's saw sawed Soar's seesaw.

One-one was a race horse.
Two-two was one too.
One-one won one race.
Two-two won one too.

Once a fellow met a fellow In a field of beans.
Said a fellow to a fellow, "If a fellow asks a fellow,
Can a fellow tell a fellow What a fellow means?"

A fly flew past Flo's flat, and a lively young fisher named amidst the mists and coldest

A tree-toad loved a she-toad Who lived up in a tree.
He was a two-toed tree-toad But a three-toed toad was she.
The two-toed tree toad tried to win The three-toed she-toad's heart.
For the two-toed tree-toad loved the ground That the three-toed tree-toad trod.
But the two-toed tree-toad tried in vain;
He couldn't please her whim From her tree-toad bower,
With her three-toad power, The she-toad vetoed him.

A clipper shipped several clipped sheep. Were these clipped sheep the clipper ship's sheep? Or just clipped sheep shipped on a clipper's ship

To sit in solemn silence in a dull dark dock
In a pestilential prison with a life long lock
Awaiting the sensation of a short sharp shock
From a cheap and chippy chopper on a big black block.

Ned Nott was shot and Sam Shott was not.
So it is better to be Shott than Nott.
Some say Nott was not shot
But Shott says he shot Nott.
Either the shot Shott shot at Nott was not shot,
Or Nott was shot.
If the shot Shott shot shot Nott, Nott was shot.
But if the shot Shott shot shot Shott,
Then Shott was shot, not Nott,
However, the shot Shott shot shot not Shott, but Nott.


will keep the list updated as and when I get more...
