Tongue-twisters are a great way to practice a language in a funny way, or – in the case of Hungarian – to make you realise that our language is even more horrifying than you tought. Our readers seemed to really like the previous article about tongue-twisters, so we thought we’d put together another one. Get ready for some sentences that will warm the cockles of your heart 😉
According to csaladinet.hu, tongue-twisters are usually funny sentences, words, small texts or poem excerptions that are quite hard to pronounce clearly. Especially because very similar words follow each other, so we mix them easily and end up saying the funniest things.
Besides the fun, tongue-twisters are also very useful because they can imperceptibly develop the articulation of kids, thus facilitating ready flow of speech. These funny sentences also help in distinguishing different sounds.
Don’t be disappointed if you mix up the sounds, it even happens to us, Hungarians. We also tried to translate the sentences, so you’ll see that tongue-twisters are language-specific, it’s hard to give back its gist in another language. Nonetheless, this could develop into a great game with friends. Have fun! 🙂
