I tried writing a tongue twister earlier this week on VOX Daily and know that while it's fun to use alliterations, it's hard to arrange the words together so that they flow rhythmically (and in meter) as well as relate to each other!
Thanks for sharing that. I hadn't read that one before.
I heard once that a national news anchor actually put small pencil erasers, like ones you can break off the end of a pencil, in her mouth. She would put a whole mouth full in, looking kind of like a chipmunk storing up its gathering with puffy cheeks, etc., wait a few minutes or so, then spit them out. I guess this loosens up the muscles of the mouth and takes care of excess moisture. This apparently helps articulation and annunciation. I would not recommend this unless you are of sound mind, not on any medications, have someone with you, and a phone close by just in case. It would probably be best to do it with your head bent forward over a sink the whole time. Don't want to choke! Has anyone ever heard of this before?
