- Commencement of two or more stressed syllables of a word group either with the same consonant sound or sound group

Explanation: A group of words in a sentence with the same beginning letter. Sounds like a rhyme or poem.

Some more examples: “She sells sea-shells down by the sea-shore” or “Peter Piper Picked a Peck of Pickled Peppers”


These examples show how alliteration sounds and looks like. Looking at the first example above we see that each letter in the sentence begins with the letter O.
