    Unless, that is, the undulating undercurrents of the sibilant sounds are utterly, unavoidably enchanting to the entranced ears.

    Katrina’s right. Alliteration is the reptition of initial CONSONANT sounds.

  10. The Comeback Kid says:

    NOUN: The repetition of the same sounds or of the same kinds of sounds at the beginning of words or in stressed syllables, as in “on scrolls of silver snowy sentences” (Hart Crane). Modern alliteration is predominantly consonantal; certain literary traditions, such as Old English verse, also alliterate using vowel sounds.

  11. The Comeback Kid says:

    One further “Grammar Geek” comment:

    NOUN: 1. Resemblance of sound, especially of the vowel sounds in words, as in: “that dolphin-torn, that gong-tormented sea” (William Butler Yeats). assonant & NOUN, assonantal (-nntl)

    As a lover of SC, I thought it was my duty to educate on the proper definitions of both literary devices.

    Isn’t that assonance?
