Ummm

I think the author isn't referring to the s sounds, but the "k" sound at the end of the words..."strucK", "streaK", "lucK"

Confusion

I think a lot of the commentors are seriously confusing cosonance with alliteration; if the repeating sound is at the beginning of the word, IT IS ALLITERATION.

I wonder...

Wait.

So, is it only at the middle and ending of the word? Or is it in the beginning too?...

answer

it is only the middle or end. If it was at the beginning it would be alliteration.

Differing definition

I have been taught that consonance is a repeated consonant sound in the middle or end of the word, which distinguishes it from alliteration.

exact

exactly. beginning of words like " big beautiful butterly blissfully blushed" is alliteration, the 'B' at the beginning. As for consonance its in the middle or end.

Question

Is consonance just at the beginning of a word or is it also within a word?

Posted by Anonymous on Sat, 03/09/2013 - 21:29
ahhh!

nooo! Category: Consonance Subtitle: Alliteration(same sounds at beginnings)
other general consonance: just end and middle

SOOOO if it were at the beginning it would be alliteration..
hope this helped :D
