I learned it as " Betty

I learned it as " Betty Bodder bought a bit of bitter butter. A bit of bitter butter Betty Bodder bought. Since Betty Bodder bought a bit of bitter butter, then where's the bit of better butter Betty Bodder bought? I know it makes no sense, but most of these little verses don't.

Anyone looking for good examples of this in hip-hop:

Earl Sweatshirt is absolutely magnificent with alliteration and assonance.

make sure you're strong of will cause some of his lyrics will be a bit hard to swallow for some of you more delicate types, but if you're willing to take a young kid at his dark and broodingly genius place, he's excellent.

Hmmm

Would tounge-twisters count? Like:
How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood
OR
She sells seashells by the seashore

//Whoo. Almost messed up typing that second one c://

Tongue-Twisters

/* Yes, even tongue-twisters are included. */
/* Heck, even the combination of tongue and twister counts! */

:: See what I did there?

Posted by Anonymous on Tue, 12/09/2014 - 17:32
Yes

Yes those tongue-twisters would count.
::I add comments like this.
//This works too.
-p.s.
/* If you're special and use C, you can use this too. */

Two or more

How many words need to match for it to be considered alliteration? Two or more?

Posted by Anonymous on Tue, 10/21/2014 - 00:01
Two or more

Yes it is two or more words with the same initial sound.

Posted by Anonymous on Sat, 11/15/2014 - 19:19

QUESTION

Can something like
"Deception? Deception?"
Be an alliteration?

Basically can it be the same word twice?????

Posted by Anonymous on Tue, 09/30/2014 - 03:26
Repeating the same word twice

Repeating the same word twice is repetition, not alliteration

Posted by Anonymous on Tue, 10/07/2014 - 10:20
Deception 2x?

I don't think that's how it works.

And looked at me vaguely as

And looked at me vaguely as drinking cattle do,
And flickered his two-forked tongue
From his lips, mused a moment,

what is the literary device used in these lines?

Posted by Anonymous on Mon, 12/02/2013 - 16:56
I see two-three

There's a simile in the first sentence and there's an alliteration in end of the third sentence. The 2nd sentence could possibly be a metaphor , i'm not sure.

Posted by Anonymous on Wed, 12/16/2015 - 03:47
Simile

I can only see a simile (given that my knowledge on this topic isn't very vast)
The 'as' in the 1st line shows us that the poet is comparing the snake's action to that of a lazing cattle.
Any sentence with the words 'like' and 'as' that is comparing the similarities between any two things is a simile (and it's a metaphor if those two words aren't there)
