Peter Piper Picked a Pickled Pepper….

According to Dr McDowell, a Professor of Speech at Teacher’s College in New York, if you can recite the following without difficulty, your speech is normal:-

  • Are our oats here?
  • Many a Wit is not a whit wittier than Whittier.
  • The menu is not less important than the men you meet.
  • His suit showed spots of suet and soot.
