Aliteration : LUSENET : The Work of Edgar Allan Poe : One Thread

As Im sure you understand, alliteration is the use of multiple words in speaking or writing that have the initial sound. The poem that jumps to mind as one of the best and has numerous lines of verse as examples is The Raven. Good luck.

Sorry, Emily, my error. That should read... "same initial sound."

Alliteration is the repetition of consonant sounds at the beginning of the words and of sounds within words. Alliteration is often used in advertisingand in campaign slogans because of the catchy sounds. Example: Success is counted the sweetest By those who ne'er succeed ---- Emily Dickinson

Mindy, Your definition...ya hit a homerun, honey. However, hit and a miss on the example. Advertising aliteration, gets you everytime. The one I can't seem to get outta my head...Moms love Kix for what Kix has got, Kids Love Kix for what Kix is not.
