Rules for alliteration

Rules for Alliteration


Proper alliteration is not a repetition of letters it is a repetition of sound

Proper alliteration is NOT a repetition of letters; it is a repetition of sound.

For example, never and knight alliterate because they begin with the same consonant sound.

Conversely, even though tin and thank begin with the same letter, they do not alliterate because they don’t begin with the same consonant sound.

Alliteration

Alliteration is NOT just repeating consonant sounds at the beginning of words, it could be in the middle of a word. This is also known as “consonance.”

Consonance is a lot like alliteration, except the letters being repeated can appear at the beginning or at the end of the word.
