I Take It You Already Know... Of tough and bough and cough and dough. Others may stumble, but not you, On hiccough, thorough, laugh and through. Well done! And now you wish, perhaps, To learn of less familiar traps. Beware of heard, a dreadful word That looks like beard and sounds like bird. And dead - it's said like bed, not bead. For goodness sake, don't call it deed! Watch out for meat and great and threat. They rhyme with suite and straight and debt. A moth is not a moth in mother, Nor both in bother, broth in brotehr, And here is not a match for there, Nor dear and fear for pear and bear. And then there's dose and rose and loose - Just look them up - and goose and choose. And cork and work and card and ward. And font and front and word and sword. And do and go, then thwart and cart. Come, come, I've hardly made a start. A dreadful language? Man alive. I'd mastered it when I was five!

I always thought this one was Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers. If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers. Where's the peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked? A peck being a type of old measuring unit. It is even more difficult to try typing than to say it!!

My favourite is: She sells sea shells by the sea shore. The shells she sells are sea shells I'm sure. But if she sells sea shells by the sea shore then I'm sure she sells sea shore shells. As it has a tune too.

A bitter biting bittern Bit a better brother bittern, And the bitter better bittern Bit the bitter biter back. And the bitter bittern, bitten, By the better bitten bittern, Said: "I'm a bitter biter bit, alack!"
