Tonguebreakers are termed word sequences whose pronunciation is difficult and presents a challenge even for native speakers. In most cases this is a sequence of similar words, but they differ in certain syllables and are designed to make the speaker promise. Tongue breakers are often based on the same sound, alliteration or the combination of unusual words. Tongue breakers are generally called for amusement, but can also serve as an articulation exercise for moderators and professional speakers, or be used in spokespersons (see children’s rhymes).

The term “tongue breaker” is due to the fact that the one who tries to speak of such a tongue breaks the tongue metaphorically, and consequently, in a transposed sense, will have considerable difficulties in articulation. These linguistic difficulties are usually used for amusement.

In some cases, however, it is not just a matter of overcoming speech-language obstacles, but of provoking the expression of certain words or sequences of words. For example, the tongue breaker “thick dense spruce thickets grow thick dense.” Is pointed out that in some cases the verb fucking is said to be inadvertently expressed, which is a vulgar expression for the exercise of sexual intercourse.

Tongue breakers are termed word sequences, their correct aarticulation is difficult and even a mother tongue is a challenge. In most cases this is a sequence of similar words, but they differ in certain syllables and are designed to make the speaker promise.
In this case, syllables are combined that rarely follow one another and are therefore unusual to the speaker, and words often end with a vowel or with a diphthong, whereupon the next word also begins with a vowel or a diphthong, which causes difficulties in pronunciation (cf. Hiatus). Frequently alliterations as well as shaking rhizomes are also found (see Reimarten). However, the pronouncement of the tongue breaker is sometimes difficult, because it often has to be repeated.
