Linguistic Somersaults

A tongue twister is a reflection of the oral literature and traditions of any language. It is also a fun element that reflects the depth and richness of the language in a playful manner. These linguistic tools are also creative and efficient ways to introduce kids to language learning. A tongue twister need not be a grammatically correct or meaningful sentence. It is just a play of words, majorly with a single consonant or vowel sound repeated many times in a single sentence.

Similarly, in the Urdu language, a tongue twister may or may not make any sense, but it helps one get accustomed to the finer nuances of the language. For instance, a tongue twister helps you get the diction, the tone, and the inflection right.
