                Inner speech is typically characterized as either the activation of abstract linguistic representations or a de-
             tailed articulatory simulation that lacks only the production of sound. We present a study of the speech errors
             that occur during the inner recitation of tongue-twister-like phrases. Two forms of inner speech were tested: inner
