Tongue Twisters in Hindi: Introduction
As explained in our introductory article on tongue twisters, “a tongue twister is a phrase or a sentence which is difficult to repeat multiple times in quick succession, usually because of an alliteration or a sequence of nearly similar sounds.”
Tongue twisters are not a just great way to have fun; they potentially open new pathways into the brain’s speech-planning processes. They are known to positively develop speech development skills and are used in speech therapy as well.
Grasping the nuances of an accent is one of the toughest aspects of learning a new language, especially one with a different alphabet that comes with unfamiliar sounds. Tongue twisters for kids are known to help even in accent acquisition of a new language.

Tongue Twisters in Hindi: Structure of Hindi Language
Hindi evolved from Sanskrit and is written in the Devanagari script. Having its roots in Sanskrit, it has inherited a lot of the phonetic goodness of Sanskrit. A lot of credit must also be given to the Devanagari script. There is very little or almost no discrepancy between written text and pronunciation. Hindi, in other words, is entirely phonetic and each letter represents a syllable. Indeed, most Indian languages are highly phonetic in nature.

Therefore, it is not surprising that compared to English, the Hindi language is easier to learn. For example words ‘cat’ and ‘city’, these both start with the letter ‘c’, but they start with different sounds! Cat starts with a ‘k’ sound and city starts with a ’s’ sound, which can be confusing. However, in Hindi, every letter always has the same pronunciation.
