Every language has its own patters (greitakalbes - sing. greitakalbė)- in other words - "fast talk".

I didn't hear how good you are in pronouncing lithuanian word and how fast you can talk...so till that moment when I hear you, I wish you to train a bit :D

Šešios žąsys su šešiais žąsyčiais. (6 geese with 6 goslings).

Geri vyrai geroj girioj gerą girą gerai geria, gera gerti gerą girą geriems vyrams geroj girioj.
(Good men in a good wood good kvass are drinking, good to drink a good kvass for a good men in a good wood).

Lip vapsva per viksvą, o ta viksva vis vizg.(Climbing the wasp through the sedge, but that sedge always wriggling. (vizg = vizga)

Vidur prūdo bliūdas plūdo ( or Bliūds plūdur vidur prūdo). In the middle of the pond the bowl is floating. (or the bowl is floawing in the middle of the pond).

Pakopa po pakopos...pakopa po pakopos (step by step)

:lol: I like this the most :lol:

Maybe we can make "patters championships" :D ( I will be a judge)

;)

You are welcome to write your patters :) or the ones you will find in lithuanian.

Cool! Thanks! In Englsih we call those "tongue twisters". That should be fun to practice with my workmates tomorrow at work! :lol:

I'll take a crack at the stressing, it's important to get it right so that the sentence actually is understandable. Especially with the long one, otherwise it sounds like good men good good good good good good good ... or something :oops:

Šẽšios žą̃sys sù šešiaĩs žąsýčiais.

Gerì výrai gerõj gìrioj gẽrą gìrą gẽrai gẽria, gerà gérti gẽrą gìrą geriéms výrams gerõj gìrioj.

Lìp vapsvà per̃ vìksvą, õ tà viksvà vìs vizga.

Vidur̃ prū̃do bliūdas plū́do

Pakópa põ pakópos

Some words I didn't find anywhere like bliūdas... :) Of course someone should correct these, before they are to be used...

Bliūdas - is a bowl, in our slang language (taken from russian language :P ), but somehow it is very common in our daily language.
In correct lithuanian it must be "dubuo".
