How much wood would a woodchuck chuck is an American English-language tongue-twister.

The tongue-twister is documented as "folklore" in at Farmington, Michigan. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This is the latest accepted revision , reviewed on 21 September
Tongue twisters are fun word games used to challenge our pronunciation. The alliteration in their phrasing allows people to concentrate their practice on one sound to help with fluency. More than just silly kids' games, tongue twisters are used by actors, singers, and public speakers to work on their enunciation and articulation, so that these performers can be understood in front of a crowd. As an English learner, you can use tongue twisters to help with pronunciation of certain sounds. In this woodchuck tongue twister, you can work on your "w"s. Round your lips and make a small gap between your teeth to make the "w" sound.
