Alliteration

Alliteration Examples for Kids

Alliteration happens when words that start with the same sound are used close together in a phrase or sentence. The sound is usually a consonant and the words don’t have to always be right next to one another.
One of the fun features of alliteration is when it becomes a tongue twister.

  • Come and clean your closet.
