Tongue twister(绕口令)【learn to better pronounce words like 贬义!】


Recommended Posts



I created this tongue twister myself a while ago, as I found 贬义 relatively difficult to pronounce.


It's about a 役 called 諞(because he likes to 諞), who is in a 𡎚 named "匾堄"(because there are probably some 匾 and 堄 there? haha), 貶ing a guy named 羿。His immature behavior causes the author to think that he 不要臉。


As an aside, I've found that, at least for me, the best way to keep up with standard pronunciation is to practice a little every day, consistently.
