Tongue twister words are a sequence and rapidly repeated pronunciation which is difficult even for the native speakers.
Often, a bunch of similar words following one another with different syllables makes a tongue twister challenge. These are not just for kids but fun for all age groups. Mostly used by the public speakers, actors, politicians etc. for practising to have clearer sound and articulation. English tongue twisters are many and very popular.
