 Alliterationby Louise 
When writers use two or more words together that have the same beginning sounds, they are usingalliteration
.
 Poets especially like to use alliteration because it adds sound quality to their poems, but youtoo can use alliteration occasionally in your paragraphs or essays to add freshness and style
.
 Be careful of using too many because it can distract your reader from your ideas
.
Here aresome examples of alliteration:John received a
b
rilliant,
b
lue bird for his
b
irthday
.
 The four firefighters rushed to find the victims in the burning house
.
 She
p
icked up the
p
lump
p
each
.
 The
s
olitary child
s
ang a
s
ong
.
 
D
ancing
d
elicately,
D
on ushered in the
d
awn of a new
d
ay
.
 Here are some silly tongue twisters using alliteration: Angela Abigail Applewhite ate anchovies and artichokes
.
 Bertha Bartholomew blew big, blue bubbles
.
 Clever Clifford Cutter clumsily closed the closet clasps
.
 Dwayne Doodle drew a drawing of dreaded Dracula
.
 Elmer Elwood eluded eleven elderly elephants
.
 Floyd Flingle flipped flat flapjacks
.
 
N
ow, underline the alliteration in the following sentences:

.
 2
.
Pretty Petunia picked peaches for preserves
.
