Jersus Colmenares's insight:

From the website:

 

Voicing.

The vocal folds may be held against each other at just the right tension so that the air flowing past them from the lungs will cause them to vibrate against each other. We call this process voicing. Sounds which are made with vocal fold vibration are said to be voiced. Sounds made without vocal fold vibration are said to be voiceless.

There are several pairs of sounds in English which differ only in voicing -- that is, the two sounds have identical places and manners of articulation, but one has vocal fold vibration and the other doesn't. The [θ] of thigh and the [ð] of thy are one such pair.

Research seems to suggesta that tongue twisters do not significantly ptomote the development of inteligible pronunciation. However, it does not condemm it. It still is a fun thing to do and motivate students to keep trying!
