Kibok Hongon 18 October 2012
Transcript of Rhyme and Rhythm - Alliteration, Consonance, Assonance, and Repetition.
on thy cold gray stones, O Sea!
Alliteration Repetition of the same or similar sounds at
the beginning of words. Repetition, Alliteration, Consonance, and
Assonance. Repetition a sound word, phrase, or line that is repeated for emphasis and unity. from "Break, Break, Break" by Alfred, Lord Tennyson ex) ex) * Should the glee-glaze-
* In Death' s - stiff-stare. Alliteration * Find the alliteration in E.E. Cummings'
"Next to of course god America i." "thy sons acclaim your glorious name by gorry
by jingo by gee by gosh by gum" Alliteration thy sons acclaim your glorious name by gorry
by jingo by gee by gosh by gum Assonance The repetition of similar vowel sounds within syllables ex) The plate was shapely and well-made
from "The Bells" by Edgar Allen Poe Assonance * Find the Assonance in this quote
from "The Flea" " Oh stay, three lives in one flea spare,
Where we almost, nay more than
married are." Assonance "Oh stay, three lives in one flea spare,
Where we almost, nay more than
married are." * No matter where the similar sounds are found, as long as they are a repetition of the same vowel sound, they count! so, what's the differences
between Assonance and Rhyme? Assonance -> internal sound
Rhyme -> final sound,
combination of vowel and consonant sounds at
the end of the line that is matched to the end
of another line. Consonance The repetition of the same consonant sounds at the end of words. Ex) Flash and flesh
Breed and bread
I wish I could wash Consonance * Find the consonance in Robert Frost's "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening" "Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though" Consonance "Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though" Why are these important? * Repetition, alliteration, assonance, and consonance are all useful in literature because they create a general flow.
* They all add a sense of lyricism to a poem, or a song.
