  • Yeah! Hi, everybody! Welcome back to Top Words, my name is Alisha, and today we're going to be talking about tongue twisters.

  • Tongue twisters are phrases that are difficult to say, so they're really good chances to practice your pronunciation. Let's go!

  • "Sally sold seashells by the seashore."

  • Sally sold seashells by the seashore.

  • This one's difficult because of the "s" and "sh" sounds.

  • Sally sold seashells by the seashore. Sally sold seashells by the seashore. Sally sold seashells by the seashore.

  • That one's not so bad. Okay, okay, we'll move on. Next!

  • "Betty Botter bought some butter, but she said the butter's bitter."

  • I've never seen this before, okay!

  • Betty Botter bought some butter, but she said the butter's bitter.

  • That's a good one, that's a good one.

  • I feel like he could have thrown the word, like, butt in there somewhere, too.

  • Betty Botter bought some butter, but she said the butter's bitter.

  • Oh, that's a good one, it's very bubbly.

  • Betty Botter bought some butter, but she said the butter's bitter.

  • It's like if I, if I, if I knew the words, I could probably say it faster.

  • Betty Botter bought some butter, but she said the butter's bitter. (Attempting the tongue twister.)

  • Is this enough?

  • I don't know when to stop.

  • "How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?"

  • The next tongue twister is also a classic one about woodchucks.

  • Woodchucks are real creatures that exist on the west coast of the United States, primarily in Washington and Oregon.

  • They're like beavers but they don't live in rivers, they live in, like, forests and rocks.

  • The tongue twister is "how much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?"

  • How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

  • And then there's a common response to that, which is "It would chuck all the wood that a woodchuck could, if a woodchuck could chuck wood."

  • We definitely talked about this one in that English Topics, um, episode we did about tongue twisters.

  • "Lesser leather never weathered wetter weather better."

  • Oh, I've never seen this!

  • Lesser leather never weathered wetter weather better.

  • Hang on! I'm just I'm just, like, astounded by the grammar of this sentence.

  • Lesser leather never weathered wetter weather better.

  • Oh! That's hard! (attempting the tongue twister) those last three words.

  • (Attempting tongue twister.)

  • That's hard!

  • (Attempting the tongue twister.) Yeah, that's it!

  • Lesser leather never weathered wetter weather better.

  • Ah! On to the next one!

  • "If two witches would watch two watches, which witch would watch which watch?"

  • If two witches would watch two watches, which witch would watch which watch?

  • Did you write these? Did you write these?

  • Did you find these on the internet? Someone's brilliant!

  • If two witches would watch two watches, which witch would watch which watch?

  • That one's a good one.

  • If two witches would watch two watches, which witch would watch which watch?

  • All right! That's the end! Wow, those are really good tongue twisters!

  • The one that always gets me from that episode of English Topics that we did was "Irish wristwatch." "Irish wristwatch."

  • Hard one! And one we came up with the other day was "sushi session."

  • That's a good one, right? They were like let's go for a sushi session, I was like, that's hard!

  • Sushi session, sushi session...

  • That's a really good one, too.

  • Irish wristwatch and sushi session.

  • All right! So those are... uh, what?

  • Those are tongue twisters, give them a try, they are really, really great ways to practice your pronunciation.

  • If you know any other tongue twisters, please share them with us in the comment so that we can all give them a try.

  • Oh my god! I wanted, like, I want to have this job where I just sit at, like, my desk and I just think of... that's probably what somebody does, like, they're bored at their job, and they just think of these sorts of things.
