Is language a sign or material? 

Both tongue twister and ABC cracker are laid in between the two fields, making boundary blurry switching.

In tong twister a syllable or a letter determines meanings. It's a trick of sounds and meanings, only for those who know the language.

ABC cracker is the edibles with the shapes of alphabet, a shared social system of sign. 

By matching these two, one for the form and the other for the content, I tried to navigate the ambiguity of language.

I would say, using ABC cracker to present tongue twister is a pure formalism in language in Greenberg way.
