Ask-A-Linguist Message Details
I was wondering if there is any information about tongue twisters:
if specific phonemes cause confusion, if only certain phonemes can
be interchanged, etc. I need information from credible sources. Thank
you for your time and help!
In addition to the article recommended by Dr Cruz-Ferreira, I would add that most
tongue twisters feature repetition of identical or nearly identical sounds.
I would guess that it's the closeness of the sounds repeating that matters rather than
the sounds themselves.
One place that collects tongue twisters.
