Alliteration is the repetition of consonant sounds in two or more neighboring words or syllable. Quotes like "...by nightfall were like soft teacakes with frosting of sweat and sweet talcum" (5). Sweat and sweet were the two words that are alliteration because they both start with "sw" which makes the sentence to have repeating consonant sounds. Other examples are "Oliver Optic" (98) and "born and bred" (5). Both are also alliteration because of the sounds that are repeating the consonant sounds in the words that are close to each other.
