Repetitio words, stanzas, n phrases, etc. Its done to show something of importance. RHYME

My Beard by Shel Silverstein The repetition of sounds End rhyme- the last word on each line rhymes. Internal rhyme- Words INSIDE the sentence rhyme. My beard grows to my toes,

I never wears no clothes, I wraps my hair Around my bare, And down the road I goes. N O I T A R

E T I L L A The repetition of the first letter or sound in two or more words in a line.

Often found in tongue-twisters Example: How much dew would a dewdrop drop if a dewdrop did drop dew? Alliteration Alliteration She Walks in Beauty I.

She walks in beauty, like the night Of cloudless climes and starry skies; And all thats best of dark and bright Meet in her aspect and her eyes: Thus mellowed to that tender light Which Heaven to gaudy day denies. These examples use the beginning sounds of words only twice in a line, but by definition,

Alliteration Example in poetry: ASSONANCE Repetition of VOWEL sounds within words that are close together Assonance gives emphasis to

words or sets the tone in a poem. Examples: How sweet are thee to give me a treat. Up in the sky there flies a great spy plane. Cacophony Harsh, clashing

sounds produced by using words with an explosive sound Examples: The plate crashed to the ground. The car screeched to a stop. Source: https://slidepla 615211/ Allegory Source: 952324/e: Irony Irony is the use of words to

Situational irony: The Goose & The Golden Egg One day a countryman going to the nest of his Goose found there an egg all yellow and glittering. When he took it up it was as heavy as lead and he was going to throw it away, because he thought a trick had been played upon him. But he took it home on second thought, and soon found to his delight that it was an egg of pure gold. Every morning the same thing occurred, and he soon became rich by selling his eggs. As he grew rich he grew greedy; and thinking to get at once all the gold the Goose could give, he killed it and opened it only to find nothing. Greed oft o'er reaches itself.
