Hi,
I was hoping to train myself to become a whistle tooth. This is where you can talk with a sharp whistle on every "s" sound. I think this requires wooden teeth. Does anyone know anything on the subject?

Thanks all!

I only know that 2 of my brothers do it when they want to tease me, cause they know that I like it but I can't do it.

It's an annoying speech impediment. Why on earth would you want to sound annoying?

Dr. Turbyfill is listening not for his patients’ dramatic flair, but for their s’s. The letter’s normal hiss can turn into a distracting whistle as an unexpected and unhappy result of any dental treatment that alters the contour or position of the front teeth.

Step 1: Learn how to wistle with your tounge (i.e. not with fingers or with your lips)
Step 2: Practice incorporating that whistle into speech.
Step 3: Watch as the people around you slowly start avoiding you

To me, I'm only interested in number one. It's good to know how to Whistle without using hands, it's really handy.
