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.
