Interesting Polish tongue twister.

But very easy to pronounce

I found it not too hard.

There are harder ones for me, ones that mix (as mentioned above) sz and si and cz/ci in close proximity.

Sometimes I have to say the term "czcigodny mistrz" out loud and naturally want to say it with transference from English as "czczygodny myscz".

I don't have a problem with pronouncing szcz, but in that tongue twister I'm tripping over these 3 words, szczypcach strzęp szczawiu.

czcigodny mistrz

Odd turn of phrase!

Not that unusual I would think.

Yeah, they really are a mouthful!

I don't find those hard at all. There are other words and combinations of letters that are way harder.

Maybe because I had elocution lessons as a kid and have a job where I sometimes have to address large groups of people so have to take care about enunciation.

The sixth sick sheik's sixth sheep's sick seems harder.

A point well made!

Strangely enough, I find that one easy.

I find this one hard too:

Przeleciały trzy pstre przepiórzyce przez trzy pstre kamienice.

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

I've said it correctly at the first go, but, as often with tongue twisters, I had to focus a bit more.

Przeleciały trzy pstre przepiórzyce przez trzy pstre kamienice.

This one is rather easy actually! xD
