Pamela: I have to giggle, this is from my era, I am in my 70s now, I remember My Mother reciting these to us as children.I bet your students get a giggle out of these.Catherine
I've never heard most of the ones on that list of 50. The first 4 are familiar, two of the ones further down the list were advertising slogans for particular products, but I've never heard any of the remaining 44!
My favourite has always been, is and will continue to be no 6 about the ice cream we scream for.No 48 really twisted my tongue, probably because I can not picture the meaning.
I also have not heard of the majority on your list. It fascinates me how there are so many accents in English.
I love tongue twisters. Thanks for the list. Will play with my boys.
I'm not good at tongue twisters but they are so much fun!
The 'classical' German tongue twister is 'Fischers Fritz fischt frische Fische' and 'In Ulm, um Ulm, und um Ulm herum' :)
