    10 English Tongue Twisters to Improve English Pronunciation

    Not sure what else I need to do to get it accepted by Owlocation - or any other niche site - as it is published on HB but rejected by Owlocation subject to improvement.

    There are a few inconsistencies in sub-head title casing, but they're not critical.

    I think the frequent use of boldface and boldface italics might be an issue. It makes the layout look messy, and boldface is seen as being shouty on the Internet.

      Thanks Rupert, I've removed the italics and only used bold face now for the actual sayings.

    I agree with Rupert. The bold print could be a problem. The links to your other articles could be, too. The first site that you link to doesn't seem to exist any more. When I clicked on the link, I got a warning saying that it was dangerous. The incomplete summaries in the descriptions of your articles look strange.

      Thanks Alicia, I've deleted the links to my other articles now.

    Your title has "English" in it twice.
    Your bio needs a period(.) at the end.  That is a red flag that you need to proof your article.
    The bold type has a specific purpose. In the writing guidelines, HP discusses this.

      Thanks Kenna, I have deleted one "English" in the title, added a full stop in my bio, which meant I had to write "&" instead of "and" in order not to exceed the 140 character limit, and I have removed the bold type except for the tonguetwisters themselves.

    Try this one:

    "Betty Botter bought some butter but she said: 'this butter's bitter! If I put it in my batter, my batter will be bitter, but a bit o' better butter will make my batter better!'
    So Betty Botter bought some butter, better than the bitter butter, put it in her batter. She put a bit o' better butter into her batter, made her batter better."

      I guess so. I have no claim to it, it's not my original work.

        Ok, I've added it - thanks.  It's quite old, so outside of copywright.
