The "Tongue Twister" Paradigm as a Technique for Studying Phonological Encoding.
Wilshire, Carolyn E.
Language and Speech, v42 n1 p57-82 Jan-Mar 1999
Two experiments explored the tongue-twister paradigm, which involves reciting a word string several times over at a fast rate, using a task variation that minimizes articulatory and mnemonic load. The task was found to elicit good rates of "pure" articulatory errors. Two features had a significant error-reducing effect: repeated reiteration and the use of similar phonemes in targets.
