Alliteration is the repetition of consonant sounds in a series of words. If the consonants are the same but the sounds are different they do not alliterate. eg. By chance or nature's changing course untrimmed", Sonnet 18, W. Shakespeare LILLIE FORTNER WAZ HERE!!!! An ape ate an apple and an acorn, is an alliteration. Peter Piper picked a pack of pickle peppers is an alliteration. those are more like tongue twisters but you get the idea....
