Talking A tongue twister ? ¿En Español?

I am not sure how to say tongue twister in Spanish - but this is what I am trying to learn to help me with my pronunciation -

R con R cigarro,
R con R barril
rápido corren los carros
cargados de azúcar al ferrocarril

¿muy difícil no?

bueno suerte !

Ruby

¡Hola Ruby! La palabra que aprendí es trabalenguas. Ésa es muy útil para la "rr" y la "r". ¡Buena suerte!

There was a time I enjoyed tongue twisters, but my tongue is not as agile as days past. Now I can say tongue-twisters better in Spanish than in English.

Un taburete mal entaburetado,
¡qué venga otro entaburetador!
que lo entaburete mejor.

This reminds me of these in Finnish:

Vesihiisikö se sihisi hississä.
Appilan pappilan apupapin paksuposkipiski pisti poskeensa paksun papupurkin.
Kokoo kokoon koko kokko! Koko kokkoko? Koko kokko.


And this, the longest Finnish word:

lentokonesuihkuturbiinimoottoriapumekaanikkoaliups eerioppilas

And this word is quite funny too. It can be read both forward and also backward:

saippuakivikauppias

English has a number of palindromes (words that are read both forward and backward). Many people have posted these. Some are complete sentences!

If you split the word up it's easier to see, and understand. Most people would have trouble pronouncing it, if they don't know Finnish, as they don't know where to put the stress and pauses.

lentokone = airplane
suihku = shower
turbiini = turbine
moottori = motor
apu = assistance/help/support
mekaanikko = machinist/mechanic
aliupseeri = non-commissioned officer (a rank in the Finnish army)
oppilas = pupil

Once you separated it into words I could kind of figure out what the word would be because of the similarities in my "supposed" pronunciation since I don't know how the pronunciation would be...... i.e.

moottori = motor
turbiini = turbine
mekaanikko = machinist/mechanic

Very interesting and nice. Thanks for sharing.

Mi trabalenguas........

Pancha plancha con cuatro planchas
con cuatro planchas plancha pancha
Si pancha plancha con cuatro planchas
¿Con cuántas planchas plancha pancha?
