Tongue Twister Of The Day

Tongue twisters are great fun, especially in groups, but they’re also fantastic tools for practising articulation; voice is like a muscle – the more you use it the stronger it will be and the more control it will offer you.  When learning new languages our mouths struggle to form the correct shapes to create the new sounds, but we train ourselves with brand new words, and so tongue twisters help maximise our voice potential by going over familiar ones in patterns that concentrate on particular sound groups. Here’s a favourite:

To sit in solemn silence in a dull, dark dock,
In a pestilential prison, with a life-long lock,
Awaiting the sensation of a short, sharp shock,
From a cheap and chippy chopper on a big black block!
To sit in solemn silence in a dull, dark dock,
In a pestilential prison, with a life-long lock,
Awaiting the sensation of a short, sharp shock,
From a cheap and chippy chopper on a big black block!
A dull, dark dock, a life-long lock,
A short, sharp shock, a big black block!
To sit in solemn silence in a pestilential prison,
And awaiting the sensation
From a cheap and chippy chopper on a big black block!
