How about it? Write this together?
Posted by: Jean-Paul (---.nt.net)
Date: December 31, 2003 01:04PM

Who wants to add to this (either before these lines or after) using purely consonance or assonance?
I am looking for one or two lines at a time.
Add as often as you deem fit.
The challenge is to go from A to Z (in that order) if possible
(kudos for the one who does Q and X)

Always assume ants alight atop apples
but bees between buddies bite bottoms

At risk of (once again) being labeled a prig:

"Assonance is the repetition of vowel sounds within a short passage of verse or prose. If the repeated sounds are consonants, the figure of speech is consonance when the repeated consonants are in the middle of the word, or alliteration when the repeated consonants are the first letters of the word. A combination of terminal assonance and consonance (the final vowel/consonant combination being repeated) results in rhyme."

Hugh,
Thanks for the info.
What is it called, then, when each word starts with the same vowel? or the same consonant?

"I "Love Summer more than I hate Winter"

Jean-Paul, what we're doing here is homogeneous alliteration. Also known as
assonance.

The Princeton, with its usual pedantic obscurity, says assonance is,

"sometimes called 'vocalic rhyme' [and] denotes vowel identity in the tonic syllables, sometimes supported by the same device in the succeeding unstessed syllables, of words whose consonants differ or, if partly the same, avoid creating rhyme (grave/fate; votive/notice; glory/holy) and which (1) echo each other in the same line or in different portions of a poem, or which (2) appear at the end of successive or alternating lines."

A tonic syllable is one that carries the main stress of a word.

Here you go Hugh, are you contributing to this thread, or just here to define our task?

Insofar as it is posted on the wrong forum (being user submitted), I am merely being annoying, while contributing to the general discussion, of course.

This is a good thread, in my opinion.
Hugh is right though, this should be in the General Discussion Forum.

Stephen, can you move it over?

The understanding I get is that "Alliteration is the repetition of initial consonant sounds in two or more neighboring words or syllables"

"I "Love Summer more than I hate Winter"

seals slip silently seaward
turtles tell tales to transient tuna

umbrellas unveil umbra under unicorn's universe
verdant visions; violets vie vibrantly

with windward wats we walk within willowy whispers
x-raying x-linked xeon xenophiles xerox x-files

youth yelps: yahoo you're yellow
zebras zoo-like zeal zigs zenously

"the figure of speech is consonance when the repeated consonants are in the middle of the word" !?

Can anyone give me an example of this?
