Alliteration

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.

  1. “But on this most auspicious of nights, permit me then, in lieu of the more commonplace soubriquet, to suggest the character of this dramatis persona. Voila! In view humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the “vox populi” now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a bygone vexation stands vivified, and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin, van guarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition.

    The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous.

    Verily this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it’s my very good honour to meet you and you may call me V”

    – V

  2. Spooky Scary Skelletons, send shivers down your spine, shrieking skulls will shock your soul and seal your doom tonight.
