Someone at work wrote this down for me, but his handwriting was so bad I can't make out most of the letters. Perhaps writing it is as difficult as saying it because I'd been finding it nigh on impossible to read. I'd still like to know exactly what it means. I've got three out of four words!

There is some phrase about a beetle making a noise in the grass....highly tricky to say in Polish....

you mastered Polish if you are able to pronounce most of this...

mastered Polish?

:)

slowly for me its doable.
try it 3 times. then its a tongue twister O.O

I like this little poem:
Chrzęst szczęk pstrych krów wprządł w słuch
Szept: "Trwasz wśród warstw łgarstw? Tchórz!
Stwórz wpierw z przerw werw, w chwil skruch
Strzęp chwalb - nerw ścierw czymś strwóż!"
- Stanisław Barańczak

my favourite one: rotmistrz z Tczewa, poczmistrz z Czchowa. Oh hell, I have trouble just trying to pronounce Basia Trzetrzelewska's surname.

actually this one is spelled phonetically, so besides the ó/u thing it shouldn't actually be that difficult to spell if you know how it's supposed to sound (even if you can't say it out loud)

stój z powyłamywanymi nogami.. that would be quite a difficult task to acomplish ; )

fast it's a pain, it has an odd rythm that makes it easy to skip letters somewhere; at first mine ended up being powyłamymi when friends pushed me to it (thus the learned 'stól bez nóg' response ^_~) but now I'm okay with it

W Szczebrzyszenie Chrąszcz Brzmi w Trzyczynie

LOL that's the twister I won with when my cuban friend said his language had the hardest tongue twisters (he, a guy from china, a guy from thailand, another girl and I were driving from college to an event when this all started)

W Szczebrzyszenie Chrąszcz Brzmi w Trzyczynie

Chrząszcz brzmi w trzcinie w Szczebrzeszynie,
W szczękach chrząszcza trzeszczy miąższ,
Czcza szczypawka czka w Szczecinie,
Chrząszcza szczudłem przechrzcił wąż.


And famous movie quote:
Grzegorz Brzęczyszczykiewicz, Chrząszczyrzewąszczyce powiat £ękołody.

I've just found a good one:

this one is to teach children the R sound - many Polish children have trouble with it - I had - my 'rower' was 'lovel' ;) - my brother had - his 'rower' was jowej (yovey) and I used to make him shout hurra :) (hurray) heheh (he was so young and naive heheh ) :)

anyway it is fun to pronounce it when you finally grasp the rolling R thing :)

sooo sooo much fun :)

How about sth that weighs 999.000 kilos ?

Dziewięćsetdziewięćdziesiątdziewięćtysiącokilogramowy ;)

Something that weighs 999999 kilos:

Dziewięćsetdziewięćdziesiątdziewięćtysięcydziewięćsetdziewięćdziesięciodziewięciokilogramowy ;)

Correction:

DziewięćsetdziewięćdziesiątdziewięćtysiĘCYkilogramowy.

I think this is proper for something of weight of 999000 kilos.

There's a nice one which for Poles is a tongue twister but which for first language speakers of certain other languages (including English) is so easy that it isn't a tongue twister. It's:

Butelka oetykietowana, butelka nieoetykietowana

is so easy that it isn't a tongue twister.

Yes, coz it doesn`t contain clusters of hissing consonants which are a nightmare to foreigners, even of Slavic background.

I find them OK and only have to go slowly when there's ć and cz or ś and sz in close proximity.

And the word "Chrzciciel", though JP2 used to stumble over that one too.

Some people are intimidated by szcz however that combination occurs in English too.

This one's not too difficult:

W czasie suszy szosa sucha.

This one's a nightmare...

Czy rak trzyma w szczypcach strzęp szczawiu czy trzy części trzciny.

szcz however that combination occurs in English too.

Pushchair

W czasie suszy szosa sucha.

Another version of it is: Suchą szosą Sasza szedł which means A boy called Sasha was walking along a dry road.

Czy rak trzyma w szczypcach strzęp szczawiu czy trzy części trzciny.

Wow, never heard or read this one. Amasing! But very easy to pronounce, in fact. :):):)

Correct. Those with lisping disorder wouldn`t. :):):):)

Or they would???? coz lisping helps produce hissing sounds.

Perhaps we should ask our Polish members how hard it is for them to pronounce that tongue twister :):):)
