Does anyone know a decent Swedish tongue twister based on the letter R? I've looked around a bit without finding one.

Speak fairly good Swedish, so the harder, the better!

If ou do find one then try learning it in Skånska... That would be highly entertaining smile.gif

Funnily enough this started from trying to do an impression of Zlatan. And failing miserably. I think I'll stick to the Stockholm R, its a wee bit easier...

Having looked up on various sites, for 'tungvrickare' or tongue-twisters there does seem to be a shortage using R. Sjuksköterskor, laxask, får and åa - in plenty, but nothing to match Round and round the ragged rock.
When teaching English to my evening classes, I often used some of our best known ones, especially Whether the weather be wet, making the Swedes more aware of the difference between W and V.
We had a load of fun, I can assure you. Tongue-twisters are a good way of improving one's 'uttal'.
But sorry, tough luck on R in Swedish.
