Trabalenguas Los trabalenguas, también llamados destrabalenguas, son oraciones o textos breves, en cualquier idioma, creados para que su pronunciación en voz alta sea difícil de pronunciar. Con frecuencia son usados bien como un género jocoso de la literatura oral o bien como ejercicio para desarrollar una dicción ágil y expedita. Los trabalenguas constituyen a la vez un tipo de literatura popular de naturaleza oral. En especial sirve para hacer a uno equivocarse en varias ocasiones las personas que lo pronuncian no lo pueden hacer y ahí se desarrolla el conflicto de la pronunciación. Suelen ser juegos de palabras que combinan fonemas similares, y con frecuencia se crean con aliteraciones y rimas con dos o tres secuencias de sonidos. Por ejemplo, «Tres tristes tigres tragan trigo en un trigal», o «Pablito clavó un clavito en la calva de un calvito. En otros idiomas hay trabalenguas que juegan con fonemas o estructuras silábicas inexistentes en español. Referencias[editar] Enlaces externos[editar]

Mind map Diagram to visually organize information A mind map is a diagram used to visually organize information into a hierarchy, showing relationships among pieces of the whole.[1] It is often created around a single concept, drawn as an image in the center of a blank page, to which associated representations of ideas such as images, words and parts of words are added. Major ideas are connected directly to the central concept, and other ideas branch out from those major ideas. Mind maps can also be drawn by hand, either as "notes" during a lecture, meeting or planning session, for example, or as higher quality pictures when more time is available. Mind maps are considered to be a type of spider diagram.[2] A similar concept in the 1970s was "idea sun bursting".[3] Origins[edit] The semantic network was developed in the late 1950s as a theory to understand human learning and developed further by Allan M.
