English Pronunciation – a Poem

Posted: June 9, 2015 in Reblogged

Give it a try..it’s awesome..whosoever created is surely a genius..!!

Nicholas C. Rossis

I found this on Tickld and just had to share! According to the original post, if you can pronounce correctly every word in this poem, you will be speaking English better than 90% of the native English speakers in the world. And, after trying the verses, a Frenchman said he’d prefer six months of hard labor to reading six lines aloud…

This Greek gave up somewhere along two thirds into it 🙂

From the blog of Nicholas C. Rossis, author of science fiction, the Pearseus epic fantasy series and children's books

Update: In a fascinating display of her sleuth skills, Angela of the Hedgeblog Times found out that it was written by Gerard Nolst Trenité in 1922. Its proper title is “The Chaos.” She even unearthed a video of a poor soul reading the thing in its entirety!


Given up yet? Why not read my award-winning children’s book, Runaway Smile for free instead?
