Vocabulary of Alliteration
This Vocabulary of Alliteration is a new
aid in writing poems and songs (and in the study of phonetic or phonemic
syllable divisions in English). Alliteration is one of several aural devices in
literature making use of the repetition of single sounds or groups of sounds. It
is quite often believed to be nothing else than the repetition of word-initial
sounds, especially consonants. For such rough and ready alliteration a special
dictionary would hardly be needed. However, if alliteration is, in a more
sophisticated and traditional fashion, interpreted as the repetition of speech
sounds at the beginning of syllables, and of stressed syllables only, then
word-initial consonance or assonance need not be alliteration and vice versa.
The first syllables of words often do not receive primary stress in English, not
even secondary stress, and therefore specially prepared lists of words of which
the stressed syllables start with the same sound or sounds will be of interest
to anyone studying or creating aural effects and imagery in verbal
