Tongue Twisters for twisted tongues?

Posted Nov 05 2006 12:00am
I am currently reading Stutter by Harvard Professor Shell. He claims that tongue twisters are all always impossible for people who stutter. Is this assertion true?

I can do tongue twisters when I concentrate: How about you?

Maybe, we could even use them to improve our speech control. The secret about tongue twisters is to switch between two very similar sounding words several times within a sentence. Practising switching accurately and maintaining concentration might re-train our speech system. I practised one tongue twister 100 times and afterwards I had the impression of far greater control of my speech. As usual this is temporary, but practising every day might help.

Pls post your tongue twisters! :-)
