Alliteration is the repetition of the same sound or letter at the beginning of multiple words in a sentence or phrase. It is used to create a musical or rhythmic effect, to add emphasis to certain words, or to make a phrase more memorable. Alliteration can be found in poetry, song lyrics, and even in everyday speech. It is often used for its poetic qualities, to create a sense of harmony or to draw attention to certain words or ideas. Alliteration can also be used to create a specific mood or atmosphere in a piece of writing.

Examples of alliteration:

Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers.

She sells seashells by the seashore.

Silly Sally swiftly shooed seven silly sheep.

A big black bug bit a big black bear.

Bobby’s bicycle bounced by Brenda’s bakery.

Dan’s dog dug deep down in the dirt.

Freddy frog fancied feasting on fresh flies.

Greta greeted guests with a gracious grin.
