Copy of Alliteration, Assonance and Consonance
Transcript of Copy of Alliteration, Assonance and Consonance
Consonance What is Alliteration? Alliteration is the repetition of sounds through more than one word or syllable.
For example: “The lurid letters of Lucy Lewis are luscious, lucid and libidinous." What is Assonance? Assonance is the same or similar vowel sound repeated in the stressed syllable of a word, followed by uncommon consonant sounds.
Examples: hate and sale, or drive and higher What is Consonance? Consonance is the same or similar consonant sound repeated in the stressed syllable, preceded by uncommon vowel sounds.
Examples: urn and shorn, or irk and torque. Why do poets use aural repetition? Alliteration, assonance and consonance can be used for a variety reasons, including:
Onomatopoeia (for example, a poem about a snake may contain many “ssss” sounds).
Remember that in good poetry, form should always follow function. In other words, alliteration, assonance and consonance are used deliberately to reflect content in the poem. Video Example What do you think? Does the speaker make use of alliteration, assonance, or consonance in this video?
