Tongue Twister Tuesday: Peter Piper`s Pickled Pepper

I bet you know this classical English tongue twister... it`s not just one of the tongue-twisting sayings that you could use to "impress" people (if that is still possible), it`s also well-used as a striking example for alliterations e.g. in school classes.

Today`s tongue twister follows a very easy pattern: First, there`s a statement. Then, you repeat that statement again, but in different word order. For the last part of the lyric poem, the reader just questions the statement as if he wasn`t quite sure, if it`s right.

 Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled pepper.
A peck of pickled pepper Peter Piper picked.
If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled pepper, 
where`s the peck of pickled pepper Peter Piper picked?

♪♫ For a little challenge try to sing along this funny song by Bryant Oden`s Songdrops...

Happy tongue-twisting!
