2 Alliteration

3 What is Alliteration? Alliteration is the repetition of initial consonant sound in two or more neighboring words or syllables. Also known as Initial Rhyme. Here are some examples: the wild winds of winter Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers.

4 Let’s look at another example… WEATHER Whether the weather be fine Or whether the weather be not, Whether the weather be cold Or whether the weather be hot, We'll weather the weather Whatever the weather, Whether we like it or not. -- Anonymous

5 What is the purpose of Alliteration?

6 The purpose of alliteration is to create a pattern that catches the reader’s attention.

7 The railroad tracks ran right through the center of town. Alliteration makes the reader read faster.

8 Alliterative poems tend to be tongue twisters. They are written for the fun they bring when they are read! She sells seashells by the seashore!

9 Rules for Alliteration

10 Proper alliteration is NOT a repetition of letters; it is a repetition of sound. For example, never and knight alliterate because they begin with the same consonant sound. Conversely, even though tin and thank begin with the same letter, they do not alliterate because they don’t begin with the same consonant sound.

11 Alliteration is all around us! Take some time to look around and notice…

12 In a Story or poetry… Fresh Fish Do you like fresh fish? It's just fine at Finney's Diner. Finney also has some fresher fish that's fresher and much finer. But his best fish is his freshest fish and Finney says with pride, "The finest fish at Finney's is my freshest fish, French-fried!" "Oh say can you say" Dr. Seuss, 1979
