Sound and Sound Patterns AJ Soutter Paul Johnson
Alliteration Alliteration is the repetition of sounds in nearby words or stressed syllables. Allergic antelopes ate an assortment of analgesics. “We/ Lurk late. We/ Strike straight.” Alliteration that occurs inside words is called internal alliteration. E.g. “conclude”
Assonance The repetition of similar vowels in the stressed syllables of successive words Used to create internal rhyming within phrases or sentences Examples –Or hear old Triton blow his wreathed horn –Hear the mellow wedding bells –The crumbling which suits abstruser musings
Consonance The repetition of consonants, especially at the ends of words Commonly used in poetry and songs Examples –Pitt patter –all mammals named Sam are clammy –"And the silken sad uncertain rustling of each purple curtain." – The Raven
Onomatopoeia Onomatopoeia has two meanings. First, it is the use of a word or phrase that seems to imitate the sound it denotes. E.g. bang, creak, murmur, ding-dong, or plop Bank, creek, and plot are not onomatopoeic
Onomatopoeia Cont. The second meaning of onomatopoeia is the use of words in such a way that they seem to exemplify what they denote, in sound, pacing, force, touch, movement, or duration.
Onomatopoeia Cont. I felt a funeral in my Brain/ And Mourners to and fro/ Kept treading-treading-till it seemed/ that Sense was breaking through “Mourners” is onomatopoeic, as is “treading”
