What Is Alliteration?

So we begin, the questions that are often asked mostly by professors to their students. Depending on the level of their knowledge as well. But this kind of topic is often given to high school and university students. Based on the examples above and the other small set of examples at the beginning of the article, you would see a wide set of phrases with the same first letters, or words and phrases that almost sound alike. It is also mentioned that there is a term for that, and we mentioned alliteration. Now the question, what is an alliteration? What can be considered as an example of an alliteration? What does alliterations do to your sentences? Why is it necessary to be learning about alliterations? Can alliterations help in pronouncing words properly or can they be used as examples in speeches? Can children be taught alliteration examples at a young age? The following questions will be answered as thoroughly as possible, as well as given an example for each.

What is an alliteration? An alliteration is a group of words or a group of phrases found in sentences that give out the first letter of the word or phrase to be that same as the next. It is however not limited to that. An alliteration can also mean a word or a phrase that sounds almost the same as the first word in the sentence. To make it as simple as possible, an alliteration is a repetition of either the letters which mostly starts at the beginning or a repetition of the sounds of the word or the phrase in the sentence. Example would be “Barry the bouncing baby boy.” This example is considered an alliteration. Because the letters b are mostly repeated in the sentence. Another would be, “Mary Mary quite the contrary.” This famous nursery rhyme can also be considered an alliteration as the words Mary and contrary are almost similar when said out loud.

What can be considered as an example of an alliteration? Any sentence formed wherein the first letter or the sound of the word or phrase is almost the same, can be considered an example for an alliteration. The famous tongue twisters can be considered an example of alliterations. Seeing as most tongue twisters follow this pattern of the first letter of the word or the phrase would be the same as most of the phrases of the tongue twister. An example for this pattern would be “She sells seashells by the seashore.” Not only does it follow the same letter which makes it a good example for an alliteration, the phrases when said out loud almost have the same sound. Which is still considered as an alliteration. Another example would be from a famous nursery rhyme “Ring ‘round the rosy, a pocket full of posies. Ashes ashes we all fall down.” The alliteration found here is the lines ring ‘round the rosy and a pocket full of posies. The alliteration is the ring, round, rosy, pocket, posies. From the letter r that is common in the first line to how the words round and rosy when pronounced sounds almost the same. The same goes with pocket and posies. As for the ashes ashes we all fall down, the only alliteration found is the word ashes repeated twice. The letter that is common between both words.

What does alliterations do to your sentences? You can always find alliterations in literature. This makes literary pieces sound interesting and fun to the reader. As most of the time, literary authors use words to either sound almost the same to make it look nice. In a way, using alliteration makes their literary pieces stand out. The way a good shoe wax shines even the dullest of shoes. For advertising businesses, it attracts the right audiences. The famous alliteration example of a brand would be coca cola. Not only is this an example of an alliteration but it is also one of the biggest business chains with a lot of audience. Alliterations help gain attraction as it is not just a short word, but it can also be quite catchy. All of which is what some businesses use to gain attention from the consumers.
