It is common courtesy to spell out or pronounce the name of a colleague correctly. However, many people with non-generic or non-western names face a problem of their name not being registered in the right way in other people's minds.

People with strange names may feel they are at a disadvantage when their colleagues keep on using the wrong name.

From a young age, we learn how to be a good friend to others. We learn how to share and to treat others how we want to be treated.

A tongue twister is a type of diction or articulation exercise containing a series of alliterations that challenge language enthusiasts to recite difficult words at a fast, rhythmic pace and help them improve their fluency, speech, and accent. The linguistic sensation is also seen as a spoken word game that brings enjoyment to its practitioners, and is celebrated as a casual holiday every 8th of November.
To master the art of detangling the twisted tongue, one may recite the tongue twister slowly at first, and then practice it in a repetitive manner while gradually speeding up his or her pace.
