A Selection from “Peter Piper’s Practical Principles of Plain and Perfect Pronunciation” by Anonymous

LibriVox logoLibriVox volunteers bring you 7 recordings of A Selection from Peter Piper’s Practical Principles of Plain and Perfect Pronunciation by Anonymous. This was the Weekly Poetry project for November 20th to November 27th, 2011.

‘Peter Piper’s Practical Principles of Plain and Perfect Pronunciation’ contains the famous ‘Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers’ tongue twister, although this twister was tripping tongues for many years before it first appeared in print. The book also contains a tongue twister of a similar style for every letter of the alphabet. This selection contains the verses for C, F and K. (Summary by Lucy Perry)

A Selection from Peter Piper’s Practical Principles of Plain and Perfect Pronunciation
C

Captain Crackskull crack’d a Catchpoll’s Cockscomb:
Did Captain Crackskull crack a Catchpoll’s Cockscomb?
If Captain Crackskull crack’d a Catchpoll’s Cockscomb,
Where’s the Catchpoll’s Cockscomb Captain Crackskull crack’d?

F

Francis Fribble figured on a Frenchman’s Filly:
Did Francis Fribble figure on a Frenchman’s Filly?
If Francis Fribble figured on a Frenchman’s Filly,
Where’s the Frenchman’s Filly Francis Fribble figured on?

K

Kimbo Kemble kicked his Kinsman’s Kettle:
Did Kimbo Kemble kick his Kinsman’s Kettle?
If Kimbo Kemble kick’d his Kinsman’s Kettle,
Where’s the Kinsman’s Kettle Kimbo Kemble kick’d?
