Tongue Twisters in English

Can you read these terrific tongue twisters out loud without getting tongue-tied?

She saw shy sheep

She sells seashells on the seashore

Bugs black blood

Rubber baby buggy bumpers

Betty Botter bought some butter
‘Oh!’ she said, ‘this butter’s bitter
If I use this bitter butter
It will make my batter bitter
I need a bit of better butter
Just to make my batter better’
Betty bought a bit of better butter
Now Betty’s batter isn’t bitter

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

Tongue Twisters in English

Are you copper-bottoming ‘em pans?
No, I’m aluminiuming ‘em, mum

River Wytham, River Wytham

Unique New York, Unique New York

Red lorry yellow lorry, Red lorry yellow lorry

Moses supposes his toeses are roses
But Moses supposes erroneously
For Moses he knowses his toeses aren’t roses
Like Moses supposes his toeses to be

Minnie Mouse makes many marshmallows for Mickey Mouse to munch on

This snail is stale
Its tail is stale
And this is a stale tale

The Leith police dismisseth us, which causeth us dismay

A fly and a flea in a flue
Were caught, so what did they do?
Said the fly, ‘Let us flee!’
Said the flea, ‘Let us fly!’
So they flew through a flaw in the flue

Round the rugged rock the ragged rascal ran

Roger Rocket ran around the river and rented a raft to ride on

Phineas Foster fishes for fat flounder

Veronica Victor vowed to view the vanguard vicariously

When the very wet Venetian vet went to Venice
His voyage was viewed with vindictive regret
By a Venetian vendor named Verity

Canals in the Alps are comparable to a lot of canyon-like canals in the capital
of Canada

The enthusiasm that Theresa Thomas told of
Took the terribly thin thirty-ish Turkish thespian Theseus Thurber
Completely by surprise
