Alliteration

Post by natttt

Alliteration is the repetition of the initial consonant. There should be at least two repetitions in a row.

Examples of alliteration are:

Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers.
The first letter, p, is a consonant. It is repeated many times. (If you use a syllable rather than a consonant, it is assonance.)

Don"t delay dawns disarming display .
Dusk demands daylight .
Dewdrops dwell delicately
drawing dazzling delight .
Dewdrops dilute daisies domain.
Distinguished debutantes . Diamonds defray delivered
daylights distilled daisy dance
