What is a tongue-twister?

A tongue-twister is a phrase that is designed to be difficult to articulate properly. Tongue-twisters rely on similar but distinct phenomena, unfamiliar constructs or other strange combinations of the sound and meaning of words. Tongue-twisters use a combination of alliteration and rhyme. They have two or three sequences of sounds. The same sequences are repeated with an exchange of similar sounds.
