Test Your Talent with This Tricky Tongue Twister
IF YOU’RE UP TO THE CHALLENGE of voicing vowels and saying syllables without stumbling, try this tongue twister sent in by Ralph MacGuffaye of Cheshire, Connecticut:
~Betty Botter bought a bi t of butter. But,’
she said, ‘this butter’s bitter. If I put this
bitter butter in my batter, it will make my
batter bitter. But a bit of better butter will
make my batter better.’ So Betty Botter
bought a bit of better butter, which made
her batter better.”
Some auctioneer schools use this tongue twister to help students limber up their tongues. You can almost hear an auctioneer’s rhythmic chant as you repeat it.
‘Tis Your Turn. If you have a tongue twister that will totally tongue-tie our readers, we’d like to see it.
