Say them ten times!
 

Almost every language has their own collection of totally tongue-twisting sentences. Half the time, these sentences may not make much sense and may invoke a sense of whimsy in their wordplay. 

 

The Filipino Language is no stranger to these circumstances. We, too, have our own fair share of totally thoughtful yet tactically tiresome collections of texts that will surely end in tirades by the reader due to the taxing nature of these… letters.

We picked the twisters that seemed the most odd or brought the most playfulness in its literary context; and found a way to bring the visual subcontext of each sentence to life!


Feel free to peruse how our wordsmiths and world-smiths made the most magical of animated eye-treats from these three tongue-tingling text twisters!
