Thieves seize skis, Irish wristwatch

The Tongue Twister Database

Tongue Twister Poems

1st International Collection of Tongue Twisters, with 2790 entries in 109 languages. I have no idea how to start pronouncing this Norwegian one, but all the dots make it look very interesting:
Leika dåkkå dåkkå mæ dåkkå dåkkå då?
(translation: Are you playing with dolls, are you?)

Did you know that you don't even need to get the tongue involved? A finger-fumbler is the sign language equivalent of a tongue twister. I gather that one particularly good example is to sign "good blood, bad blood". I searched the Interwebs for a video of a finger-fumbler, but came up... (wait for it)... empty-handed.
