Anthology of British Tongue-Twisters by Ken Parkin is an old book, published in 1969, it is also the first specialist collection of tongue twisters and is still a great tool for warming up and improving general articulation.

This is a fun book with lots of exercises for articulation. Some are easier than others and it has different chapters on different sounds. It has 622 tongue-twisters and some songs at the end, so there is plenty to try from. This can be a great book for someone for whom English is not their first language, of course. At the same time, it can be great for English-natives who might want to brush up on their pronunciation or just have fun. Many of the exercises are suitable for children too.

  • This sounds brilliant! I love Tongue twisters. I wrote a song version of Peter Piper for one of my projects for my diploma in Music Class Teaching- I wonder where it is? I should look for it and use it!

  • I used to love tongue twisters as a child, although I can’t remember too many of then any more – – – This book was originally published in my era (I would have been 11), so I would be sure to remember quite a few of them, if I were to see them – – – Hubbie still tries to teach the younger members of the family the odd tongue twister, although unfortunately they are generally the ones which, if said incorrectly, can sound quite rude. I’m sure they will get their own back on him one day! – – – I guess my favourite, being a girl and all that, would have been “She Sells Sea-Shells by the Sea Shore” – – – Another of those ‘memory lane’ books I like so much. Thanks for sharing and I’m pleased it made you smile 🙂

    • Maybe they are similar or the same, as I imagine there aren’t so many tongue-twisters, although there are over 600 in this book, so I might be very wrong. :))
