ALLITERATION: DR. HARESHWAR ROY


QUESTION: What is Alliteration?

ANSWER: Alliteration is one of the important figures of speech. It is the close repetition of consonant sounds at the beginning of two or more words.
For example:     [1] To sit in solemn silence in a dull, dark dock,
                                 In a pestilential prison, with a life long lock.                                                   [W.S.Gilbert: The Mikado]
                           [2] Fish, flesh, or fowl, commend all summer long
                                Whatever is begotten, born and dies. [Yeats:Sailing To                                    Byzantium]
