How are your R's and L's?

Depending on where you are from, sometimes, mother tongue interference affects the way we pronounce some words. For example, sons and daughters of Gikuyu and Mumbi cannot say the word 'parallelogram' or 'red lorry' without biting their tongues and they're not the only ones; nearly every Kenyan tribe has certain unique speech interferences. In addition, you could have a lisp maybe due to a heavy tongue or gap teeth that ends up affecting how you pronounce some words. But when it comes to tongue twisters, it's all mind games. The reason why we can't seem to get them right is because the representations in the brain overlap.

I'm sure you have tried the 'She Sells Sea Shells by The Sea Shores Of Seychelles' tongue twister before...you thought that was tough? Well you thought wrong.

Here are some of the toughest tongue twisters:

1. The sixth sick sheikh’s sixth sheep’s sick - Guinness World Record's toughest tongue twister.

2. How can a clam cram in a clean cream can.

3. Rory the warrior and Roger the worrier were reared wrongly in a rural brewery.

4. I wish to wish the wish you wish to wish, but if you wish the wish the witch wishes, I won’t wish the wish you wish to wish.

5. The thirty-three thieves thought that they thrilled the throne throughout Thursday.

6. Red lorry yellow lorry.

7. Can you can a canned can into an un-canned can like a canner can can a canned can into an un-canned can?

8. If you must cross a course cross cow across a crowded cow crossing, cross the cross coarse cow across the crowded cow crossing carefully.

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

10. If two witches were watching two watches, which witch would watch which watch.
