Tongue twisters are a great way to warm up your articulators.[1] Begin slowly at first, then pick up speed. Enunciate each word clearly. Don’t drift off or drop the ends of words.

Use these in conjunction with enunciation exercises.

Many more tongue twisters are provided at the International Collection of Tongue Twisters.

Where she sits she shines, and where she shines she sits.

Clean clams crammed in clean cans.

Six sick hicks nick six slick bricks with picks and sticks.

He threw three free throws.

The seething sea ceaseth and thus the seething sea sufficeth us.

Amid the mists and coldest frosts With stoutest wrists and loudest boasts He thrusts his fists against the posts And still insists he sees the ghosts.[2]
