Alliteration Examples

Alliteration, in prosody, the repetition of consonant sounds at the beginning of words or stressed syllables. Sometimes the repetition of initial vowel sounds (head rhyme) is also referred to as alliteration. As a poetic device, it is often discussed with assonance and consonance. In languages (such as Chinese) that emphasize tonality, the use of alliteration is rare or absent.

Alliteration is found in many common phrases, such as "pretty as a picture" and "dead as a doornail," and is a common poetic device in almost all languages. In its simplest form, it reinforces one or two consonantal sounds, as in William Shakespeare's line:
When I do count the clock that tells the time (Sonnet XII)

A more complex pattern of alliteration is created when consonants both at the beginning of words and at the beginning of stressed syllables within words are repeated, as in Percy Bysshe Shelley's line:
The City's voice itself is soft like Solitude's ("Stanzas Written inDejection Near Naples")

1. Justice is blind and, at times, deaf.
2. Money is the only friend that I can count on.
3. The cactus saluted any visitor brave enough to travel the scorched land.
In the first example we have a metaphor (because life is being directly compared to a journey. The second and third examples are alliterations and this is illustrated by the fact that both examples include 'like' or 'as'.
