Alliteration

It is a stylistic device in which a number of words, having the same first consonant sound, occur close together in a series.

  • But a better butter makes a batter better.
  • A big bully beats a baby boy.

Both sentences are alliterative because the same first letter of words (B) occurs close together and produces alliteration in the sentence. An important point to remember here is that alliteration does not depend on letters but on sounds. So the phrase not knotty is alliterative, but cigarette chase is not.
