    • Tongue Twisters ① I thought, I thought of thinking of thanking you. ② She sells sea shells by the seashore. ① Nine nimble noblemen nibbling nuts. ① How can a clam cram in a clean cream can? ② Can you can a can as a canner can can a can? ① Roberta ran rings around the Roman ruins. ① A big black bug bit a big black bear on his big black back. ① Green glass globes glow greenly. ① I like New York, unique New York, I like unique New York. ① If you notice this notice, you will notice that this notice is not worth noticing.
    • Tongue Twisters Betty Botter bought some butter, "But," she said, "this butter's bitter; If I put it in my batter, It will make my batter bitter; But a bit of better butter, Better than this bitter butter Will make my bitter batter better." So she bought a bit of better butter, Better than the bitter butter, And made her bitter batter better. Theophilus Thistle, the thistle sifter
While sifting a sieve full of unsifted thistles, Thrust three thousand thistles through the thick of his thumb.
