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

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)

No

As much wood as a Woodchuck could chuck if a Woodchuck could chuck wood.

Help

By Tom Petty

Well I won't back down, no I won't back down
You could stand me up at the gates of hell
But I won't back down

Gonna stand my ground, won't be turned around
And I'll keep this world from draggin' me down
Gonna stand my ground and I won't back down

Chorus
Hey baby, there ain't no easy way out
Hey I will stand my ground
And I won't back down

Well I know what's right, I got just one life
In a world that keeps on pushin' me around
But I'll stand my ground and I won't back down

Hey baby there ain't no easy way out
Hey I will stand my ground
And I won't back down

Is there any literary device in this?

Posted by Anonymous on Sun, 09/29/2013 - 23:17

Question

Correct me if im wrong, but isn't the sound at the end or the middle of a sentence another type of literary device?
If it is, what is it called?
