French term or phrase: virelangues
This is from a cultural project for European oral literature and this seems to be a newly invented word for the occasion!

Les composantes de la littérature orale sont....fables, chants, proverbes, les dictons, les virelangues, les devinettes et énigmes...

I almost want to call it "tongue twister" but the author is not available. Does anyone know this word? Thanks.
