Suis-je bien chez ce cher Serge ?
Sweezh byaa shace shair sairzh? Click below to hear this tonguetwister pronounced.
Am I comfortable at the home of that dear Serge?
Yet another tonguetwister on the /s/-/sh/-/zh/ theme. That part is obvious, though I won’t say easy!
A few notes:
Suis-je has a single syllable, even though the non-inverted form, je suis, has two.
Je suis bien means I am comfortable, or in more contemporary speech, I’m good.
You remember chez. It means at the home of or at the office of or various similar phrases.
Okay then…take it away!
