    This thread is for you to post Tongue Twisters you know.

    It will be great to see whether there are regional ones about ;)
    It should be fun!

    Enjoy...

    Now, please stick to the forum rules. That's all, folks

    For starters try this one....

    Strange strategic statistics. :)

    What regions/languages were you thinking of? May I post some of our German tongue twisters also? (I could try to help with the pronunciation.)

    I've checked the rules, and there doesn't appear to be anything that would exclude the posting of German tongue-twisters. It might be an idea to post a translation at the same time.

    EDIT: We do have a precedent for posting in this kind of thread. Within the structure of the rules, the OP can limit or broaden the scope as he sees fit, so it would be in Richard's place to make this call.

    Ok, let's test the waters, here is one that seems to work in both languages...


    Je suis ce que je suis et si je suis ce que je suis, qu'est-ce que je suis?

    I am what I am and if I am what I am, what am I?

    It's easier in English. :) (Or I should practice my French again. ;-))

    Please correct me if wrong,


    Der Braumeister zu Zipf zapft zehn Fässer Zipfer.

    The brewer of Zipf taps ten barrels of Zipfer.

    (This one is for you, but I've never tried Zipfer ;))

    This one is in my language, I hope it's not too difficult to read:

    Fips mixt Fixmixdrinks, fix mixt Fips Fixmixdrinks.

    (All the i's are spoken like in "drink".)
    Fips mixes fix mixed drinks, quickly Fips mixes fix mixed drinks.

    It's not really a tongue twister [well, officially], but I've always stumbled over "rear wheel."

    Try it. It's rather difficult... Honest! :)

    Who's the OP? I've heard the term twice, and I'm confused.
