An alliteration is a type of figurative language that repeats the consonant sound in a sentence. Most alliterations are tongue twisters. Alliteration mostly have seven repeating words in the sentence. One of the old English styles of writing the alliterations is one of the least used types of figurative language.

A common example in English is "Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers." Alliteration can take the form of assonance, the repetition of a vowel, or consonance, the repetition of a consonant; however, unlike a strict definition of alliteration, both assonance and consonance can regularly occur within words as opposed to being limited to the word's initial sound.
