Today I want to offer one of my favorite tongue twisters. Tongue twisters are a lovely way to exercise your articulators and get your tongue excited about speaking. Importantly, make sure you are intentional about breath and accuracy before you care about speed. Have fun!
All I want is a proper cup of coffee.
Made in a proper copper coffee pot.
You can believe it or not.
But I want a cup of coffee from a proper copper pot.
Tin coffee pots or iron coffee pots, they’re no good to me.
If I can’t have a proper cup of coffee from a proper copper coffee pot, I’ll just have tea.
