LOCK - IN ENGLISH LANGUAGE

A tongue-twister is a phrase designed to be difficult to articulate properly, correctly and quickly. It consists on attempting to recite a tricky rhyme or phrase as fast as possible without making mistakes on the pronounce challenges and hurdles lurking within these tongue-tying* sentences. An example of a tongue twister is The sixth sick sheikh's sixth sheep's sick, which is supposedly the hardest tongue-twister in the English language according to Guinness World Records. By combining the effects of alliteration (repetition of a sound), particularly similar but distinct sounds, with a phrase designed such that it is made very easy to slip accidentally, English tongue-twisters can be guaranteed to provide us with lots of fun and laughter. These sentences and poems may also be used by foreign students of English to improve their accent, actors who need to develop a certain accent, and by speech therapists to help those with speech difficulties.
Another typical tongue-twister is How many slips would a slip ship shift if a slip ship could shift slips? It is a tongue-twister because the letters f and p and the letters s and sh are interchanged in an unfamiliar sequence that is difficult to speak without practice. Try to pronounce the following tongue-twisters. You can also invite you friends to a contest and have bunches of fun!
